    Senses Therapies is a private speech and occupational therapy practice in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Senses Therapies was founded by two friends, both of whom are mothers to special children.  Our mission is to provide an integrative therapy approach, taking children back to basics by learning as all children should; through play.  We focus on the building blocks of development by immersing children in multisensory experiences and individualize our therapy sessions based on where your child is, and where they need to go.  By feeding the senses, we will help your child develop a strong foundation for learning.

    Camp LEAP IN ​is an inclusive camp for children in both in regular and special education programs. Our curriculum was created to include children with autism, ADHD, and sensory processing deficits.

    • Fun-filled Summer Sessions

      Each session will focus on sensory, gross and fine motor skills, speech and language, and social and emotional development.

    • Freedom to Play

      All campers will participate in structured, hands-on tasks to promote developmental skills, but will also have plenty of opportunity for unstructured and child-directed play. Children can gravitate towards what their bodies need to fulfill their sensory needs through activity centers in nature.

  • Play is so integral to childhood that a child who does not have the opportunities to play is cut off from a major portion of childhood.”
