Motor & Sensory Differences

The most current research (Torres et al., 2018) suggests that neurodiverse individuals demonstrate motor and sensory differences, and these differences can affect access to everyday life. From communication to academics and social interactions, inefficient sensory motor systems affect all aspects of life. Our purposeful motor programs at Interplay Therapy Center will target motor goals to support the connection between the brain and the body so clients can participate in the community, engage with family and friends, find a reliable way to communicate, and reach their academic goals.

“Sensory motor differences are a difference, interference or shift in the efficient and effective use of movement. It is the disruption in the organization and regulation of perception, action, posture, language, speech, thought, emotion and/or memory”. (Donnellan & Leary, 2005).
