How can we help?
MIND offers Sensory Integration (SI) Therapy which aims to help children manage their difficulties with sensory processing and sensory modulation. At MIND, our Sensory Integration therapists change how the brain reacts to different stimulation. Our therapy techniques allow children to understand better their sense of touch, smell, taste, sight, movement, hearing, body awareness, and pull of gravity. Our licensed therapists are highly skilled and experienced with this form of intervention. Based on our evaluation results, we develop a personalized treatment program in which we use the most appropriate techniques and tools to overcome identified difficulties. Before therapy commences, we will provide targeted outcomes and objectives, which will be reviewed regularly.

Our qualified professionals will work to determine if sensory integration therapy is suitable for your child and tailor the interventions to the child’s specific sensory processing profile and needs.
