How OT helps to support children :
At DCCA, our experts are well trained in Sensory Integration (SI) to evaluate and address children’s sensory processing disorders. An OT works in close coordination with the child in a playful environment to help remove the obstacles which hinder the process of learning, allowing them to calm down and focus which is not possible without the OT due to their sensory processing disorder.
Based on the activity levels, low or high of the child, Sensory integration therapy is planed, the main focus is to ameliorate the capability of the brain to function and process sensory information for the child to perform their daily routines/activities.
