Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Individuals with IDD often experience sensory modulation difficulties. This study aimed to identify the effects of sensory diets on adults with IDD at a day habilitation in Texas. All participants had difficulty with sensory modulation, as determined by the Adolescent–Adult Sensory Profile (AASP) and structured observations. Sensory diets were created and are currently being implemented. Results will be analyzed and presented using visual analysis.
