Parents - Sensory Diet FAQs

1.  What can I expect when my child completes the Sensory Diet program?

This program is designed to address the psycho-social emotional area of functioning. Parents typically report behavioral changes such as: increased attention, improved sleep, increased focus and purposeful interaction.

 

2.  Will I notice a difference in my child right away?

Most parents report behavioral changes in their child within the first month of the program.

 

3.  What do the SD fees include?

This is a 4 to 6 month course of intervention that includes:

a) Design of the individualized sensory diet
b) Consultation and delivery of the program
c) Check in
d) Consultation

5.  What happens after my child has completed the Sensory Diet program?

Once your child has completed the course of therapy, we suggest having an evaluation to identify if there are deficits in the other developmental areas. If there are higher level deficits, we then shift to the consultative model of the home program.

Our family had a wonderful experience working with Therapeeds. I am an OT and a mom with a child who had special needs. I was searching for 2 1/2 years for a therapist who could help us. Julia is innovative and does not follow a cook book when helping children. Julia and her staff not only help the child, she is there for the whole family. Julia really understands how the brain works (as much as we know in today's world). She is able to assess where the child specifically is having problems and target those areas. Once my son integrated his ATNR as part of his treatment he was able to write. His OT at school said she had never seen any of her clients go from barely forming letters to writing full sentences in less than 2 months. I am so grateful to Julia and we are so thankful to her. My son is thriving in regular first grade. Therapeutic intensives with OT, ST, and audiology coupled with diet, and correct supplementation recovered my son. Julia and TheraPeeds are the real deal.
