Help Children with Sensory Processing Disorder in NW Portland
What is Sensory Processing Disorder?
Also called Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a disorder in which the brain cannot properly synthesize multisensory information. This causes hypersensitivity (over-responsiveness to stimuli) or hyposensitivity (under-responsiveness to stimuli). If a child is affected by hypersensitivity, they may have extreme or fearful responses to specific textures, sounds, and tastes. Conversely, children with hyposensitivity may seem fearless, inappropriately touching people and/or objects and putting themselves in dangerous situations due to their under-reaction to pain.
Generally, children with Sensory Processing Disorder are very particular about what they like and do not like; and because children with SPD are highly affected by their sensory preferences, Sensory Processing Disorder affects everyday functioning. In order to help children with Sensory Processing Disorder, the Brain Balance Achievement Center of NW Portland provides a drug-free approach to SPD help. We believe that the best way to address your child’s Sensory Processing Disorder is by addressing the disorder at its core rather than just attacking the symptoms. Our goal at Brain Balance Achievement Center of NW Portland is to help your child with their Sensory Processing Disorder by creating the best program for them.

SPD Program at the Brain Balance Achievement Center of NW Portland
Each child enrolled in our program is given a personalized assessment. The assessment allows us to see your child’s strengths and weaknesses in different areas of function, such as motor, sensory, behavioral, social, emotional, and academic.
Once we get the results of your child’s assessment, we create a custom program for them in which we combine in-center sessions with at-home activities to help your child succeed. Your child’s personalized program will include sensory motor training and simulation, academic activity plans, and dietary guidelines that are crucial in SPD help.
