SPD Corner: Sensory Processing: Assessment & Intervention Strategies

[Source: Best Practice Autism] Unusual sensory responses (i.e., sensory over-responsivity, sensory under-responsivity, and sensory seeking) are relatively common in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Sensory issues are now included in the DSM-5 ASD symptom criteria for restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities (RRB), and include hyper-or hypo-reactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects of the environment; such as apparent…

OT Corner: The Importance of Crossing Midline for Children with SPD

[Source: The Recycling OT] Typically developing children naturally cross midline during play and functional activities. This is not a skill that parents usually teach, which is why you've probably never heard the term before. Children with dyspraxia other types of Sensory Processing disorders (SPD) may avoid crossing midline. MIDLINE: is an imaginary vertical line running from the top of the head to the toes, that divides the body into left and right sides. Seven-year-old Pedro reached for…

Sensory Corner: Strategies for Wearing Masks during the Pandemic

[Source: Sensory Smarts] by Lindsey Biel The COVID-19 pandemic is disorienting and scary for all of us. It has been a marvel for me as an occupational therapist to see how well so many of my clients —children, teens, and adults alike — have coped with this surreal disruption of daily routines. As we adjust to the “new normal” many are still learning to take the proactive steps needed to protect the safety of themselves and others: washing hands frequently, physically distancing, and wearing…

Brain Benefits of Sensory Motor Groups

[Source: Your Therapy Source] Do you provide group therapy sessions? Is it ever a struggle for children to participate? Do you find that some children have the motor skills when playing alone but then have difficulties when they start playing in a group game? Participating in sensory-motor group games requires additional executive functions than playing alone. Sensory-motor groups add on another level of cognitive load i.e. impulse control, higher motor planning, self-regulation, etc…

Sensory Corner: Sensory-Based Interventions in School-Based OT

[Source: Fab Strategies.org] School occupational therapists apply sensory-based interventions (SBIs) providing specific sensory input for improved classroom behavior.

[Source: USA Today] A common ingredient in DIY slime is to blame for a Massachusetts girl’s second- and third-degree burns, according to reports. Eleven-year-old Kathleen Quinn who made DIY slime “a million times” with no problems, suddenly started crying in extreme pain in the middle of the night, mom Siobhan Quinn told WCVB Channel 5 in Boston. The girl had second and third-degree burns covering her hands, because of her contact with detergent booster borax, her doctor said. A quick…

Sensory Corner: Engaging Reluctant Children in Art Play

[Source: Special-ism] One of the concerns repeatedly raised by parents is their child’s lack of interest and willingness to engage in art play, especially coloring, drawing and beginning writing activities. Often this is the parent of a child, typically a boy, who is very active, demonstrating greater interest in running, jumping, climbing than in sitting down to draw. It can also be the child who is reluctant to engage with art materials, such as glue or paint, due to sensory defensiveness…

Link Discovered Between Touch and Level of Social Difficulty in Autism

[Source: Medical News Today] The sense of touch may play a more crucial role in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) than previously assumed. The main findings of the doctoral research of Eliane Deschrijver, which are now published, show that individuals with ASD may have difficulties to determine which tactile sensations belong to the action of someone else. Many individuals with ASD are over- or undersensitive to sensory information. Some feel overwhelmed by busy environments such as…
