This mixed-methods research examined the impact of sensory-based OT intervention on youth in a juvenile correctional facility through record review data analysis and interviews with incarcerated youth. Youth had a significantly lower rate of violence following OT intervention and other positive behavioral and emotional changes. The findings support the effectiveness of sensory-based OT and its significance for this underserved population.
