Together We Light The Way

Behavior is often a concern for families.

Behavior is a communication. There is a reason we act the way we do. Our behavior is shaped by our experiences and how we interpret these experiences. When we experience something, we are talking about what happened and what it felt like. This involves taking in sensory information from the world and our own bodies. When we interpret experiences, we are creating meaning out of the event which involves our perception of the experience. Perception often determines our beliefs and how we respond. In other words, behavior communicates our perception and the way we are experiencing the world.


Behavior is addressed at the Lamp Post both directly and indirectly. The indirect route involves understanding the reason(s) for behavior. By improving sensory integration and building adaptive skills, many problematic “behaviors” can be resolved.


When direct behavioral intervention is required, the Lamp Post utilizes the framework of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). The goal of TBRI is to maintain connection and build relationships through trust. Only when we earn trust can we influence another’s behavior through teaching, empowering, and correcting.


All therapists and staff at the Lamp Post are fully trained TBRI practitioners.

Our Focus

The Lamp Post is different from other therapy clinics because of our focus and expertise in sensory integration. We have found great success with using a sensory integrative frame of reference in its practice to help families and individuals with varying struggles and diagnoses.

Our Approach

Our approach to addressing the concerns related to sensory processing dysfunction involves individualized assessment and treatment. It is the job of the therapist to adapt to the needs of the client. The therapist is keenly observing and constantly assessing the need and adapting the activity and environment to ensure the successful developmental process. In other words, instead of having a mold for a client to fit into, we mold to the client’s sensory and motor needs which is the basis for successful skill building.

I wanted to tell you again how thankful we are that you were (are) part of our lives and let you know we miss you! The service you offer families is priceless! You truly have a gift and the Lamp Post will always be a very special place to me and our family, truly my light in darkness!
