Sensory Integration Programme (SNOOZELEN – SENSORY)

aisthtiriaki1

Sensory integration enables us to use our body effectively, by  correctly "organising" our senses and the perception of our surroundings.

The brain selects, reinforces, impedes, compares and links sensory information in a flexible and variable way.

This new activity is an alternative way to intervene in the learning process and is undertaken in specially equipped premises divided into an area for children with low mental ability (snoozelen) and children with moderate mental retardation (sensory).

aisthtiriaki2Using reinforced but controlled sensory stimuli (visual, touch, auditory, self-perceived) to activate the senses, we aim at inducing adaptive behaviour.

The programme is directed by the Scientific Director and integrated into the wider therapeutic programme offered by our Society through its physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and music therapist.
