Here are a few of the options that we offer in office which can specifically help with the symptoms associated with Sensory Processing Disorders.
Neurofeedback can help rewire and strengthen the brain. Each client receives specialized treatment, meaning that we make an individualized program based on the needs of each person. The specific type of neurofeedback that may best fit your needs will be determined during your first office visit. Please read a more in-depth description about neurofeedback here.

Scotopic Sensitivity Testing / Irlen syndrome
Seventy percent of the information an individual receives enters through the eyes and must be correctly interpreted by the brain. Any problem in the way the brain processes visual information can cause difficulties in the general ability to function. Sensory overload causes problems processing, interpreting, and interacting with the environment. The Irlen Method helps individuals with Autism and Asperger Syndrome who have perceptual problems, light sensitivity, and sensory overload by filtering the frequencies of light to which the individual is sensitive. This allows the brain to process visual information normally.
We screen for Irlen's syndrome in our office and can provide colored overlays on the same day. We refer for specialized lens filters as well.
The listening program: The listening program trains the auditory and vestibular system with pleasing evidence-based music which can improve brain fitness, reduce sensory sensitivities, and help people find comfort and safety in their environment. We offer The Listening Program as a take-home rental can be purchased if it suits you or your child’s needs.
At the cellular level, visible red and near infrared light energy stimulates cells to generate more energy and undergo self-repair. Each cell has mitochondria, which perform the function of producing cellular energy called “ATP”. This production process involves the respiratory chain. A mitochondrial enzyme called cytochrome oxidase c then accepts photonic energy when functioning below par.
