Optimizing Sensory Integration for Learning at CST Academy

Sensory integration plays a pivotal role in the development of children, particularly those with autism and diverse learning needs. Recognizing its significance, CST Academy offers a unique, therapeutic approach aimed at enhancing sensory processing abilities. This blog explores how our academy utilizes sensory integration as a foundation for fostering a rich, conducive learning environment for every child.

Understanding Sensory Integration

Sensory integration involves processing and organizing sensory information from the world around us, crucial for learning and performing daily activities. For children with autism or sensory processing disorders, challenges in integrating this information can impact learning and interaction. CST Academy addresses these challenges head-on, creating personalized strategies to support each child’s sensory development.

From tactile exploration with different textures to auditory discrimination games, our activities are designed to stimulate sensory processing in a fun, engaging manner.
  2. Integrated Therapeutic Approaches: Our multidisciplinary team, including occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists, incorporates sensory integration strategies into therapy sessions. This holistic approach ensures that sensory processing improvements are intertwined with cognitive, motor, and language development.

"After almost 2 years our son’s time at CST Academy has come to an end. The preschool program has done wonders for him. Ms Jaclyn is such a warm, kind and patient teacher. She and my son’s OT (Ms. Nikki) and ST (Ms. Erika) worked together to ensure he was meeting all of his goals. The level of collaboration between all therapies shows how dedicated they are to helping your child reach their full potential. They have all made such an impact on him, it’s amazing to see the changes since he started there. He has blossomed into a strong, confident boy who is more than prepared to start his new school in a few weeks. We will always fondly remember our time at CST Academy. Can’t recommend them enough!"
"I worked with CST Academy over a period of about 10 months. They are absolutely incredible! I also referred a friend to their program and the progress his child made just blew him away! Usually, I don’t write reviews unless I feel strongly compelled one way or the other, and in this case I do! You cannot go wrong here. I would not trust my children to anyone else. Call them and see for yourself. I have seen other programs and there is just no comparison."
