Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The BRIDGE program is presented to “bridge” the social needs of children with sensory-processing and integration challenges by providing services in dyads, triads, or quartets. This 12-session program focused on six themes: whole body listening, personal space, turn-taking, trading objects or toys, listening and communicating personal ideas, and sportsmanship. Data suggest an improvement in social skills as well as a reduction in the impact of the child’s behavior on the activities of the family.
