OTHER CONDITIONS

Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory processing disorder is a condition in which the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information that comes in through the senses.

People with sensory processing disorder may be oversensitive or undersensitive to things in their environment. Common sounds may be painful or overwhelming and the harmful environments may not result in any response. 

Children with sensory processing disorder may:

  • Be uncoordinated
  • Bump into things
  • Be unable to tell where their limbs are in space
  • Be hard to engage in conversation or play
At EduPlay Therapy, trained Occupational Therapists help your child understand the world around them and teach them how to respond to it through a process called ‘Sensory integration’. 
Learning Disability

A learning disability is a problem that affects how a child receives and processes new information. Children with learning disabilities may have trouble with any of the following:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Doing math
  • Understanding directions
At EduPlay Therapy, qualified Special Educators work with your child to help them meet age appropriate goals and become an independent learner.
Apraxia of Speech

A child suffering from Apraxia of speech finds it difficult to move their mouth and tongue to speak. This may happen, even though the person has the desire to speak and the mouth and tongue muscles are physically able to form words or eat properly.

At EduPlay Therapy, experienced Speech Therapists with internationally recognised qualifications from respected organisations such as ‘TalkTools’ and the ‘Prompt’ institute assist children to gain more control over these functions so as to enable them to eat properly and to form sounds.
