Rehabilitation therapy can be hard, regardless of your age or situation. However, Cameron Memorial Community Hospital’s Rehabilitation department is utilizing Cameron’s Community Wellness Garden as a unique occupational therapy experience to help its pediatric patients in an enjoyable and meaningful way.

“Often times, children with sensory processing issues develop behavioral concerns due to the stress that is created from various sensations,” said Joell Stuckey, director of Cameron’s Rehabilitation department. “Our community garden plot is a perfect place for children with sensory processing issues to interact with a variety of physical sensations in a meaningful way.”

Sensory integration therapy aims to help children with a sensory integration disorder by exposing them to sight, sound, touch, smell, and movement through structured and repetitive interaction with the world. Over time, the brain will adapt and allow the kids to process and react to these everyday sensations more efficiently.

The garden can also be used with adults during therapy sessions by engaging in a fun activity while learning to focus on body mechanics or movement issues.
