Understanding and Supporting Unique Sensory Needs

At LEAP Centre, we recognise that sensory processing issues can be a significant concern for many families. Sensory processing issues occur when the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information that comes in through the senses. Children with these challenges may be overly sensitive to stimuli, underreactive, or seek sensory stimulation. Our dedicated team is here to support children and families navigating these challenges.

Understanding Sensory Processing Issues

Children with sensory processing issues may have difficulties with handling everyday stimuli such as sounds, lights, textures, and movements, which can affect their daily activities and interactions. These challenges are unique to each child and can manifest in various ways, such as avoidance of certain textures or seeking constant movement.

How LEAP Centre Can Help

Expert Evaluation

Our occupational therapists are experienced in assessing and identifying sensory processing issues. We conduct comprehensive evaluations to understand each child’s sensory profile and how it affects their daily life.

Based on the assessment, we develop individualised intervention plans. These plans are designed to help children better process and respond to sensory information, improving their ability to participate in everyday activities.

We utilise sensory integration therapy techniques to provide structured and playful activities that challenge but do not overwhelm the child’s sensory system. This approach helps children develop better sensory processing abilities.

We empower parents and caregivers with knowledge and strategies to support their child’s sensory needs at home and in other environments.

We work in collaboration with families, educators, and other professionals involved in the child’s care to ensure a consistent and supportive approach across all environments.

Supporting Your Child’s Sensory Journey

Our goal at LEAP Centre is to help children with sensory processing issues feel more comfortable and competent in their environment. We strive to enhance their ability to engage in daily activities, social interactions, and learning experiences.

If you have concerns about your child’s sensory processing, please reach out to us. Together, we can create a supportive plan to address these challenges and promote a more fulfilling and comfortable experience for your child.
