At Watch Me Grow, a pediatric therapy center in New York City, physical and occupational therapists work with young patients with sensory processing disorders.

Sensory integration is the ability to use the senses to take in information, put it together with prior knowledge and memories, and create meaningful responses. Children who have sensory processing disorders don’t put all the pieces together correctly, impacting their motor and/or behavioral output.

Activities such as swings, ball pits and balance beams help children to engage their vestibular systems, strengthen their core muscles and coordinate their trunk control. Take a look at some of the fun ways therapists and patients combat sensory processing disorders.
