Testimonials

“Greyson has improved so much with Sensory Solutions. He now sits and plays quietly for longer periods of time and his speech has greatly improved. I would highly recommend Sensory Solutions.”

“Sensory Solutions has been an incredible blessing to my son. When he started back in February he was eating a handful of crunchy foods due to sensory issues & was considered a problem feeder. He was behind in language & we had a difficult time understanding him. All of this left him miserable. With the help of OT/feeding therapy, speech therapy & eventually behavioral therapy, Brooks is eating, talking up a storm, & is HAPPY! We are also able to have the ADOS test done and receive his ASD diagnosis at Sensory Solutions. This has been invaluable to us & helps us to understand our Brooks better & opens up doors for him in getting the help he will need in preschool & beyond. I cannot thank Lindsey, Melinda, Becky, Emma & the rest of the staff enough for all they have done for my son & in turn our entire family.”
