why is Sensory

a part of Quest?

Sensory preferences are specific to each individual, what calms one person may irritate another. Sensory input is especially helpful for persons with autism, blindness, or any type of functioning impairment. Our Clinical team conducts in-person assessments to create participant-specific treatment plans. The support professionals and family (if requested) are taught innovative approaches to sensory utilization, behavior management, and environment integration. This therapeutic method to service delivery provides a full circle of care; one where the participant, the family, the support professionals, and the treatment team work in unison to encompass a complete approach to care.

Our brain is constantly mapping and learning our world. Auditory, visual, tactile, and scent are all roads to self discovery and social awareness. Sensory allows us to step into a world of wild imagination...
