Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

A single subject design was used to explore in-seat time changes in a child with sensory-craving behaviors following participation in a 12-week enhanced sensory program (ESP) in OT. The ESP included occupation-based vestibular, tactile, and proprioceptive stimulation provided through play. Findings suggest that time in-seat was more stable on days when the ESP was provided, as compared to days when the program was not provided. More data are needed to validate these findings.
