For the purpose of this Sensory Workout Program, delays in function will be known as disruptions.
We call delays “disruptions” because the behaviors and sensory components associated with the delay in the skills acquisitions disrupts the progress of functional learning to take place and over time skills are delayed causing disruptions in life skills. The disruption is also a term that explains a possible root cause of the maladaptive or delayed learning of life skills and function.
The children and adult populations that we have been working closely with have had a variety of diagnosis such as autism, ASD, TBI, developmental delay and a variety of neurodevelopmental diagnosis. The foundation and basis for the SWP has been a direct outcome and a natural progression from the close work we have performed with our clients
The SWP approach focuses on the neural pathways, the pathways along which information travels through the neurons of the brain and specifically strengthening the specific neural pathways needed for skill acquisition. This program can make a difference for all persons affected by a disruption, delay and even just strengthening the neural pathways in current use.
Without a doubt, the dedication of caregivers and persistence to use the program guidelines will be a critical component to effectiveness. This program is not intended to replace any of the ongoing therapies or biomed treatments currently used, it is a critical component for a concentrated positive effect in the entire healing process of a person’s disruption in function.
