A problem in regulating responses to sensory inputs resulting in withdrawal or strong negative responses to sensations that do not usually bother others.
Problems are often seen in fluctuating emotions that are made worse by anxiety and stress, and vary with the situation.

SENSORY INTEGRATION THERAPY
Therapy in Praxis is dedicated to helping children improve self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem through the medium of play that involves a rich and purposefully directed range of sensory experiences.
Therapy in Praxis offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment programmes designed to help a child to achieve sensory integration. We also recognise and help children with Specific Sensory and Motor-Learning Difficulties (Developmental Co-ordination Disorder / Dyspraxia).
A key focus is the provision of sensory integration therapy delivered by Advanced Practitioner Occupational Therapists. This helps children with issues including lack of concentration, poor co-ordination, under or over sensitivity, difficulties with writing and other academic skills, behaviour problems, social difficulties and poor self –organisation.
Our facilities offer the latest in multi-sensory technology, creating a unique learning environment in which children can rapidly progress.
We offer support and advice to parents on activities for the home and work within schools supporting teachers and providing therapy in the school.
