Thank you for telling me more
I started doing alooooot of researching into sensory intergration play & therapy after my youngest was diagnosed with sensory processing difficulties (about 12mths ago now) by our local NHS OT, but was incredibly frustrated when all she could do was to officially diagnose him but couldn't offer any therapy of any kind as our NHS are very behind the times in accepting how effective the therapy is.
I've also done a couple of courses now, one with a real sensory intergration therapist (she had to be brought (privately with the schools funds) in from Warrington!) and I've done a couple on the sensory intergration network - heres the LINK
if you've never heard of them.
Have you ever heard of the books The Out Of Sync Child
and theres Out of Sync child has fun
if they're of any use for you?
And if this of any use Sensory-Perceptual-Issues-Autism-Experiences
I'm meeting the author actually, at a conference in Liverpool next year, if you're interested in going? link here for details
Obviously all my info is related to ASD, and I'm trying to get and raise a lot of awareness on how much it is an effective therapy to other parents.
I would be interested in having private sessions in all honesty, because the boys would benefit alot more if other children weren't there (they wouldn't reap the full benefit of the sessions otherwise as they get distracted very easily). I would also have to become involved with the session because it would take a while for them to get used to the environment, therapist,etc.
If you were thinking of taking this route as well as group sessions, please let me know...I know alot of other SN parents would also jump at this chance...
if i can be of any further help, please feel free to pm me.
