How often does my child need Sensory Integration, and at what age should I start?
Sensory Integration works closely with occupational therapy and can be started as and when ASD is diagnosed and also if you suspect your child has any sensory difficulties. It is best advisable to consult an occupational therapist when your child has difficulty in daily tasks. A child's behavior is a form of communication and a qualified occupational therapist can help to understand the issues. Sensory issues can stand alone or come along with many medical, cognitive, and stress-related conditions. When provided correctly and if the child's system responds well, sensory integration therapy can significantly help children live an improved quality of life. Each child and his/her needs are different and hence therapy has to be tailored to meet the specific requirements of theirs.
