Helping your family thrive
Flourishing Lives highly trained therapists, create an environment that challenges your child to explore and grow, while having fun, so that your child can learn new things without feeling pressure to perform. You will learn techniques to help your child at home by watching and participating in the therapeutic process.
Ayres Sensory Integration
Our therapists must learn entirely new methods and ways of implementing therapy:
All Flourishing Lives therapists have completed the theory portion of SIPT or CLASI.
Receive 1:1 training for 6 weeks from an ASI Certified Therapist with over 300 hours of direct sensory integration treatment hours.
Have extensive training in other treatment modalities.
Most have overcome sensory issues themselves so they understand where you and your child are coming from very personally.
Ayres Sensory Integration is a unique form of OT. Instead of the traditional approach where the therapist follows a protocol based on the parent's complaint, we do a detailed evaluation to assess your child, then we look at all the areas that need to be developed and we create a treatment plan that includes all of these aspects.
However, the biggest difference can be seen during the therapy session where the CHILD is encouraged to choose the treatment activities by allowing them the freedom to move through our facilities as they see fit. Our therapists have to adapt the activities that your child chooses to meet the goals of your treatment plan. This is a highly unique and challenging skill. Our therapists have to think outside the box and assimilate all kinds of information in the moment to meet the needs of your child. In an ideal therapy session, your child will have little or no idea that they are actually doing anything other than having fun with the therapist.
