About us

Overview


Sensory Academic Solutions is a clinic scheduled to open in January 2020 in Florence, South Carolina. It is the culmination of owner Michael Pullmann’s over twenty-three years of experience utilizing the principles of sensory integration—the process of receiving information with the senses, organizing it and using it to respond to the environment—to help children with a variety of developmental disabilities, autism and learning issues.

Through experience and continuing education, therapies have been added to help adults as well with migraines, chronic pain, post-concussion/traumatic brain injury symptoms and tinnitus.
