FAQs/FUNDING

As a parent, what is my role during therapy?
Sensory Solution’s therapists strongly encourage parents to be a part of their child’s program. Our therapists collaborate with parents and caregivers on an on-going basis to discuss progress, develop future goals and provide suggestions for activities that can be done outside of the clinical setting.

What funding do you accept?
Currently Sensory Solutions is a provider for Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities. We are also providers for the Autism Scholarhsip program. If you are a self pay client, we will provide you a superbill that you can turn in to your out of network insurance.

Are the therapists just “playing” with my child?
A sensory integration treatment approach uses a variety of activities that are interesting and motivating for the children to address underlying problems. Although it is very play oriented and child lead, the therapist will set up the play to include different types of activities your child needs to process sensory input more efficiently. Within those activitie,s the therapist will constantly work to increase the challenge and to encourage the child to master new skills, learn new ways to responding and to work through areas that are uncomfortable for the child.
Our therapists are highly skilled in finding and adapting activities to facilitate a “just right” challenge. Each child is gently guided into activities of their choice, making them enjoy their sessions and want to come back for more “play” on a consistent basis.

How do I know if my child has a sensory integration disorder?
Often a cluster of observations about a child lead to the suspicion of a sensory integration problem. These include developmental, behavioral and emotional responses to a variety of environmental situations. This may include a child having an unusual need to seek certain types of input (ex. Touching everything, running, jumping or crashing) or he/she may avoid touching many things (paint, glue, finger goods) or engaging in their environment. Your child may have a strong need to move and have a great deal of trouble sitting still. Another example would be motor planning problems. Your child may have a desire to engage in a task but has difficulty organizing himself/herself to actually perform the task. Emotional meltdowns are common in children with sensory integration difficulties as information for their senses is not processed as quickly or accurately as expected. This may lead to inconsistent or uncontrollable behaviors.

What services do you provide?
At Sensory Solutions we provide Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Pediatric Massage and Neurofeedback.

Are siblings permitted to attend therapy?
This is dependent on the therapist and whether it may interfere with the direct therapy provided for your child. We have provided a waiting area for parents and siblings so that your child can be provided with the best therapy possible with minimal distraction.


Testimonials

Luke has come so far in his gross and fine motor skills and overall awareness of his self and body since starting OT at Sensory Solutions! The tools we have been given and what we have learned is invaluable. As a child who does not like being outside and struggles with motor coordination, Luke has now taken to riding his scooter! He now asks to go outside and ride, and he smiles while riding which melts our hearts! He is a confident young man now.
