As a parent, it can be difficult to navigate through all the information out there about sensory related issues. It is easy to get caught up in all the products available labeled as “sensory”.
Sensory related issues can vary from one extreme to another. There are some kids out there who are hyperactive and have a difficult time controlling their body and their mind. Other kids are on the other end of the spectrum who self-injure, lash out at others, and cannot tolerate this fast paced world.
An environment that seems perfectly fine to us, can be very overstimulating to them.
Let’s Go Straight to the Problem, and Quit Treating the Symptoms
Sometimes sensory issues are treated with medication. This can be a short-term solution...but you have to ask yourself, how long are you willing to allow your child to be on medication? Medication can “dull” the system, and “mute” the body’s reactions. This however, is not solving the problem..
Instead, we could look at how the brain and body work together, and locate the source of the problem. As a parent, you might be seeing several problems on the outside, (sensitive to sounds, hyperactive, verbally reactive, harms self and others etc..) when in reality, there might only be one or two problems on the inside that are causing all of these major symptoms!
ReSprout Therapy is a specialized therapy practice that can give long-term results to sensory related issues you see in your child. Sensory issues can be a result of a poorly working neurological system. We pinpoint the source of these problems within your child, and work with the way the brain naturally develops to help improve sensory processing.
Our program is carried out by the parent at home on a daily basis. We reassess the child initially at 4 weeks following the first exercise given, and then again at 8 week intervals to monitor changes going on within the neurological system.
If you think your child could benefit from this program, contact us today. We are happy to answer any questions you may have!
