Sensory Processing Disorders

An approach to viewings the neural organizations of sensory information or an adaptive response

Intervention for SI

Control sensory input to improve sensory processing, facilitate sensory integrations and elicit an adaptive response

Firm pressure and resistance is less threatening than

light touch

Linear movement is less threatening than


Slow movement is less threatening than

rapid movement


Provide deep touch/firm pressure where the child can see the source of stimuli

Adverse affects of light touch

to face, abdomen, and palmer surfaces of the extremities

Apply tactile stimuli

in the direction of the hair growth
slow linear movements and deep-touch pressure

Follow tactile stimuli with

joint compressions

Tactile discrimination

provide deep touch pressure to the hands as well as the body, usually preformed with motor planning, graded activities requiring tactile discrim using a mixture of textures and items


provide firm touch, pressure, joint compressions, provide resistance to active movements, provide slow linear movement, resistance, and deep pressure, use weighted vest


slowly introduce linear movement with touch pressure in prone and provide resistance to active movements, linear vestibular stimuli, provide rapid rotary and angular movements with frequent starts/stops and accelerations/decelerations to increase ability to distinguish the pace of movement
