Sensory Enrichment Therapy Complements Occupational Therapy
Because the goal of Sensory Enrichment Therapy is to induce a state of enhanced plasticity in the brain, it can reach deep into the root of behaviors such as: anxiety, processing issues, and more – not just addressing autism symptoms. It basically accelerates OT’s effects. SET’s focus on aiding the brain in learning to process the environment not to get so overwhelmed.
