Sessions can be held at clinic in Mulbarton or in school/home environment depending on the therapy.
No, we can see children with or without a diagnosis.
This differs depending on the need of a child, some treatments sessions are recommended in blocks of 6/12/24
We are trained in de-escalation, conflict resolution and breakaway. We believe that aggression can be minimised through effective preparation, communication and structure. This is seen throughout all interventions offered by senSI. We can also work with a behavioural management plan.
Our opening hours are Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm
We can send reports following each block of intervention. We are happy to also communicate by phone or email as to how your child is progressing.
No, only those trained by Wilbarger. There are videos on U-Tube showing how to deliver this, but this should not be followed without guidance from a suitably qualified OT. Only the Wilbarger Therapressure brush should be used.
We specialise in working with children and young people, but there is no age restriction. However, we achieve the best clinical results in individuals under the age of 21, possibly due to neural plasticity.
We send photos of ourselves, our space and equipment, and emphasis the fun we will be having during the appointment! You can also bring your child before the appointment to look round should this be helpful.
We can complete comprehensive assessment reports and recommendations for all environments including schools, however we will not attend the tribunal arena.
Yes, of course… although this depends on the type of therapy. Please discuss this further with your therapist.
No, only those sufficiently trained. Please see College of Occupational Therapists website and Sensory Integration websites for further details.
Our assessments are non-threatening and play based. It may not be necessary to use standardised assessments and so the child cannot fail. The focus will be on fun and the child will think he/she is just playing, whilst we are analysing the sensory and motor skills.
