OTs are obliged to adhere to evidence-based principles. This qualitative study investigated OTs’ choices to implement sensory-based therapies in the face of conflicting evidence related to these approaches. Primary motivations related to the sensory processing difficulties not being adequately addressed by other interventions. Passionate beliefs in the effectiveness of sensory-based therapies, grounded in a nontraditional hierarchy of evidence, were identified.
