Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

OTs use sensory diets to manage sensory-processing disorder in children. The current evidence on the effect of sensory diets is limited. Also, findings of the studies on the effects of sensory diets are mixed (Case-Smith et al., 2015). This topic discusses the results of the study that investigated the effectiveness of sensory diets and implications for clinical application, as well as future research.
