Sensory differences and approaches to intervention

Children (and adults) can experience sensory differences that limit their participation or prevent them from doing activities that people of a similar age manage easily. When this happens they may benefit from specialist help. Various names are used to describe the different types of therapy that are available. It is helpful therefore, to think about a child’s daily activities and what you hope therapy will achieve. Focusing on meaningful goals and your expectations about therapy outcomes will be useful when discussing intervention options.
