The Sensory Learning Program is supra-modal approach to developmental learning
that unites three modalities (auditory, visual and vestibular) into one 30-day drug-free intervention to improve perception, understanding, and the ability to learn.
It is beneficial to people having trouble with sensory processing , for it plays an instrumental role in the successful treatment of symptoms related to Autism, apraxia, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, writing and learning disorders. It can be useful also to achieve one’s maximum potential for development and wellness.
The program is carried out while the patient is lying on an oscillating table in a room, lit by a monochrome slowly intermittent light, listening to a sequence of music pieces through headphones.
The treatment is a pleasant experience for the child or the young boy and consists of 24 sessions during 12 days of residential treatment, followed by further 18 days home treatment with a portable equipment.
An evaluation of the sensory profile before starting treatment guarantees personalization of the sessions.
The stimulation obtained through the program aims at reaching an improved balance of brain functioning via a bio-electric language.
Among all sensory trainings the Sensory Learning Program is the most physiological since it stimulates at the same time the auditory, optical, vestibular and self perceptive systems.
It allows the reduction or extinction of the “white noise”, including the tinnitus; it helps to improve motor coordination, mouth and face praxis, vocalization, chewing, comprehension, ability to learn, write, drawn; it can also improve sound production and verbalization. In effect some children don’t speech because they can’t recognize a specific sound we call “word” and try to reproduce it.
Most patients immediately improve and the improvement grows in the following, however, depending from the severity of symptoms it is not guarantee that non-verbal children do show significant results on speech, while improving other cognitive tools and motor coordination, as manual skills( scissors, buttons, crayons, pencils) and handwriting.
People affected by cerebral palsy can be floppy or stiff and rigid and “out of sync” eye coordination. Sensory Learning Program improve muscle tone so that sitting and standing get better.
