Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Ninety percent of OTs use sensory-based interventions to manage sensory-processing disorder (SPD) in school settings (Ahn et al., 2004). Although sensory diets, a sensory-based intervention, are widely used in school-based settings to manage SPD, the current evidence on sensory diets is sparse (Case-Smith et al., 2015). This topic discusses the results of this study, which investigated the effectiveness of sensory diets on children’s classroom behaviors.
