Sensory Processing Disorders – if your child seems to overreact to touch, taste, sounds, or smells, that’s a common sign that he or she could have sensory processing issues  .

Sensory Overload Some children may be oversensitive to sounds, sights, textures, flavors, smells and other sensory input. Others may be under sensitive to things like temperature and noise. Some kids are both oversensitive and under sensitive. Anxiety is most common in kids who are oversensitive.

 We See Your Child At Home, School, and Daycare

We see all clients at home or virtually. We believe it’s better for your child and your family. When we’re in your home with your child we can use their possessions during our sessions. For example, if your child struggles to hold objects appropriate for their age, we’ll practice using objects around your house. Your child will associate the feeling with objects they’re already familiar with. We also go to their school to work with teachers and staff when needed. 

Meanwhile, since we’re coming to you, you don’t have to get to an office – no fighting traffic, figuring out coverage with your children, or any schedule limitations due to travel.
