WHY SENSORY INTEGRATION MATTERS
Sensory integration is how the brain processes information from the 7 sensory systems. When sensory information is not processed well, this is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). SPD can be observed as problematic behaviors or difficulty preforming age-appropriate tasks.
THE IMPACT OF PRIMITIVE REFLEXES
We evaluate and treat primitive reflexes for children with learning, coordination and movement problems. Primitive reflexes guide our movements as infants but sometimes these reflexes are retained into childhood. When reflexes aren't replaced by controlled movement children can have more difficulty with learning and movement. You will be surprised what areas improve when we use reflex therapy to help address the root problem of retained reflexes.
The mission of SMART Pediatrics is to help every child be as successful and fulfilled as possible.
Sensory processing disorder affects not only the child, but the whole family, which is why we take a holistic approach to treatment.
We also aim to educate the community about sensory processing and primitive reflexes and how they impact early childhood development. That includes not only parents, but also teachers and other professionals who work with children every day.
