Problem

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a neurological condition in children that can affect the way the brain processes information from the senses. People with Sensory Processing Disorder may be extra sensitive to or may not react to sensory input, depending on the way it affects them. 

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) has long been associated with autism (over 90% of children with autism also have SPD), and its external manifestations are often what lead a parent to seeking a diagnosis. More recently, it was found that SPD is actually a stand-alone disorder, and that children can have SPD without autism, and vice versa.


Sensory Impairments and Academic Performance:
Sensory processing impairments are linked to negative academic outcomes in a significant portion of the child population. Estimated prevalence: SPD affects 1 in 6 children.

● Communication Barriers in Developmental Disorders:
Children with developmental disorders such as autism often lack sufficient verbal skills to express their needs, leading to significant challenges in providing appropriate care and support.

● Caregiver Insight Deficit:
Caregivers lack crucial information on children's sensory states, complicating the management of sensory overloads and timely assistance.

● Treatment Individualization Gap:
The current low-tech approach in treating Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) fails to adequately address the condition's highly individualized nature, which spans over a billion unique sensory profiles. Even If diagnosed, only 1 in 20 children receive the appropriate treatment.

Our solution

We provide caregivers with real-time insights and practical guidance on how to assist children facing sensory challenges.

AIsthesis offer devices bundled with a premium app subscription, targeting educational and healthcare institutions, as well as sensory therapy rooms.

We offer numerous values to both caregivers and their clients, but some of the most significant are as follows: 


● AIsthesis provides caregivers with unparalleled insights into a child's sensory state that may not be readily apparent through traditional observation methods:

● For therapists, these deep insights mean they can now understand the immediate sensory needs of the child and adjust their therapeutic approach in real-time. For example, therapists can discern the child's current emotional and physiological state through our metrics and adapt their therapy techniques accordingly for optimal benefit.

● For educators, the platform can flag patterns of distress or hyperactivity in the child. Teachers can then make real-time adjustments to the learning environment, such as reducing classroom noise or offering the child a proprioceptive input like a weighted vest. This not only helps the child maintain focus but also fosters a more inclusive learning environment.
