Manalapan Motor Skill Development For Kids: Best Sensory Gym With Climbing Walls

Sep 13, 2023

If you suspect your child might be having sensory development issues, consider bringing them in to see the experts at TOTville (732-860-8100), an occupational therapist in Manalapan, NJ.

We often forget, but being a child is tough! Having to constantly adapt to the ever-changing world while continuing to learn and grow is challenging. For children with Sensory Integration Dysfunction or Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), it's even more difficult. Now, thanks to TOTville, kids have a place where they are free to learn and grow unencumbered by the damming expectations of society.

The Manalapan, NJ occupational therapists' sensory gym provides your child with a non-threatening setting where they can have fun while developing their fine and gross motor skills. While the facility is open to all children, it's particularly beneficial if your child has been diagnosed with SPD.

Studies have shown that SPD affects anywhere from 5 to 15 percent of all school-aged children. “Children who are diagnosed with SPD are unable to integrate sensory information properly in the brain, causing problems in development, information processing, and behavior,” said a spokesperson for TOTville. The sensory gym combines movement and stimuli to try and facilitate proper sensory responses in your child if they are struggling.

  • The sensory gym features equipment designed to provide proprioceptive and vestibular sensory input. This includes linear and rotational swings, colorful climbing walls, vertical and horizontal ladders, zip lines, trapeze, crash pads, and much more. The diversity of the equipment allows your child to work on all aspects of their body.
  • While in the sensory gym, your child will be guided through activities by TOTville’s expert therapists. The activities are tailored to your child’s specific needs and designed to challenge their ability to appropriately respond to sensory input. The goal is to try and get them to elicit these appropriate responses on their own without influence or encouragement.
  • By using TOTville’s sensory gym, both you and your child can expect to see some growth. Generally speaking, sensory gym participation can lead to improvement in cognitive, behavioral, and social skills, as well as motor development. It can also increase independence, reduce stress levels, and raise tolerance to new sensations.
  • “I had such a positive experience at TOTville,” said a satisfied client. “My daughter was having some motor planning issues so I took her in for an evaluation. She didn’t even realize that’s what we were doing. That’s how welcoming, comforting, and reassuring the team at TOTville is. They provide excellent therapeutic services and evaluations, as well as a really cool gym for open play. I can’t recommend them enough.”

If you're unsure whether your child has SPD, you can bring them into TOTville for an evaluation. Typical signs that TOTville recommends you look out for are hypersensitivities or under-reactions to touch, movement, sights, and sounds, volatile activity levels, coordination problems, delays in speech, language, and motor skills, and poor organization of behavior.

TOTville’s sensory gym is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 7 pm. You can schedule sensory gym sessions and evaluations for your child by calling the number in the description or by filling out the contact form on their website.
