Here some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on SN.

Sensory integration therapy in London - anyone used Hopscotch or Kiki's?

Any info gratefully received. GOSH have suggested we look into it. Totally baffled about the range of sensory based therapy but heard that these 2 were some of the only "pure" Ayres clinics set up with swings/space to offer the full range of exercises in clinic. Anyone able to share experiences of these or other places? Also what effect (if any) on the children? Thx

Hey,

Apparently Kikis clinic is really excellent. I don't have any personal experience with that clinic, but DS will be getting assessed in hope to get some private occupational therapy there. But I've only heard of good reviews from Kiki.

You don't need to use a clinic/programme to address sensory problems. IMHO building sensory OT work into daily life is far more useful. Have you seen the Sensory Processing Disorder Support Thread?

Hi. Thanks I saw the thread. I'd quite like the fresh perspective of an outside assessment. I was thinking that we could decide whether to do DIY after that depending on what they come up with. DS is very avoidant and skilled at masking his deficits. Plus we have contradictory answers in some areas - if you had similar how do you deal with those DIY?

I used Hopscotch with dd1 but it was a few years ago (5 or so).

We had excellent results, mad would happily use them again but distance (we are not in London) makes it difficult.

Thanks pandas! Can I ask what issues you had and what improvements you saw?
