Sensory Enrichment Therapy is an evidence-based, patent-pending treatment that uses sensory experiences to enable the brain to reduce the symptoms of autism.
The treatment involves sensorimotor exercises that stimulate concurrently two or more senses such as olfactory, tactile, visual, balance, motor systems, etc.
Temple Grandin PhD, describes it this way:
Environmental enrichment is an innovative therapy that is easy and simple to do. It may help many children.
Environmental enrichment has three innovative features:
- Always changing the stimulus
- Stimulating two senses simultaneously
- One of the sense is always either smell or touch
