Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

A systematic review of literature from 2010 to 2019 yielded 2,035 studies of sensory interventions for children and youth. Using established criteria, 22 qualifying studies were identified that spanned six interventions: environmental modifications, deep touch pressure, sensory integration, sensory diet, weighted vests, and stability balls. Strong evidence supported one approach, with moderate evidence in support of three approaches. The results yielded moderate evidence against two approaches.
