Brain Balance Achievement Center of Encino Has a Program for Children with Sensory Processing Disorder
Help and Hope for Children with Sensory Processing Disorder
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), which is also called Sensory Integration Dysfunction, is a disorder that prohibits the brain from properly integrating multisensory input. Because children with SPD are highly affected by their sensory preferences, Sensory Processing Disorder affects everyday functioning.
Children with Sensory Processing Disorder are generally very particular with their likes and dislikes. These likes and dislikes emerge in two ways: hypersensitivity (over-responsiveness to stimuli) or hyposensitivity (under-responsiveness to stimuli).
- Hypersensitivity - Children may have extreme or fearful responses to specific textures, sounds, and tastes.
- Hyposensitivity - Children may seem fearless, inappropriately touching people and/or objects and putting themselves in dangerous situations due to their under-reaction to pain.
The Brain Balance Achievement Center of Encino provides a drug-free approach to SPD therapy. We believe that the best way to address your child’s Sensory Processing Disorder is by addressing the disorder at its core rather than just attacking the symptoms. Our goal at Brain Balance Achievement Center of Encino is to help your child with their Sensory Processing Disorder by creating the best program for them.
