Sensory Integration Therapy is done by a qualified Pediatric Occupational Therapist (OT) with knowledge and experience in Sensory Integration. The pediatric O.T. does assessments and evaluations, enabling them to know which sensory factors are affected.
Once this is done, they start the sensory integration therapy, which will involve fun activities that will aid the child in learning how to appropriately process the different sensory stimuli. In addition, the Pediatric O.T. creates a Sensory Diet (A program of sensory activities) for the school and home environment.
In some cases, a sensory gym is built at home to enable the child to participate in the sensory circuit effectively and have a multi-sensory environment at home.
