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.

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

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

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.

My daughter wrote a speech for a class competition and came in 3rd place! Here's some of what she wrote: "Imagine not being able to see straight, getting headaches from reading just one book, seeing letters become blurry or jumbled, and seeing two things instead of one!!! That's what happens to me. I have difficulty reading fast and smoothly and my parents and I are trying to figure out why. But then, my mom found out about two people named Julia and Aimee. We went to see them and they said my eyes had trouble with tracking, converging and teaming. That makes it really hard to read and I get a headache and really exhausted because my eyes are working so hard. The good news is that I can fix this by doing special eye exercises. I am getting better, but I have a long way to go. If you have a problem with reading, you shouldn't think that you are stupid or can't learn to read. You should try to figure out what is going on and go out and see what you can do. I hope that you find out your answer, just like I found out mine."
