Frequently Asked Questions...

What are the benefits of the Sensory LearningSM Program?
 
The overall benefits include improvement in perception, understanding and the ability to learn. We often see specific improvement in processing time, sensitivities, sleep patterns, awareness and attention, speech, memory, expression and social skills. It will also improve eye-hand coordination.

Who responds to this intervention?
 
Individuals with dysfunctional sensory integration, sensitivities to light, sound or motion, delays in motor skills, irregular sleep/activity patterns and sensory processing issues typically respond well to the Sensory Learning Program.

What's unique about the Sensory Learning Program?
 
The Sensory Learning Program unites three modalities working with the visual, auditory and vestibular systems that are normally administered individually---into one seamless and holistic experience.

Can it be too much stimulation at once?
 
On the contrary, by stimulating the well-developed sensory systems concurrently with the weaker sensory systems, the Sensory Learning Program provides an overall experience that is often gentler and more easily integrated than singularly focused interventions. Because we do not experience life in isolated modalities, the Sensory Learning Program actually provides a more holistic approach to developmental learning than do individual therapies alone.

How long before you see results?
 
Subtle changes are often seen immediately. Many participants experience significant results during the initial twelve days. Others see changes in cumulative skills unfolding over the following weeks or months.

Are the benefits lasting or must the process be periodically repeated?
 
Because the benefits gained are lasting, the Sensory Learning Program is typically a one-time intervention.
 

My child's Speech and Occupational Therapist are very interested in the Program, but our Doctor is skeptical. What kind of research do you have to support this Program?
 

The individual delivery of visual, auditory, and vestibular therapies are each over fifty years old and well established in health science. The unique benefits of combining visual, auditory, and vestibular stimulation, as provided by the Sensory Learning Program, has yet to be formally researched. However, the Sensory Learning Program has been a successful intervention since 1990 and we continue to see exceptional outcomes every day..
 

How do I determine if my child is a good candidate for the sensory Learning Program?

If you know or believe that your child has sensory issues then, in all likelihood, your child is an excellent candidate for the Sensory Learning Program.
