Parasympathetic functions in children with sensory processing disorder (pdf)

*The overall goal of this study was to determine if Parasympathetic Nervous System Activity (PsNS) is a significant biomarker of sensory processing difficulties in children.

 

Daily Living Skills and Developmental Coordination Disorder (pdf)

*Chapter from Cermak, S.A. & Larkin, D., Eds. Developmental Coordination Disorder. (2002).

 

Creating a Consensus on Terminology in Sensory Integration: Comments and Reflections (pdf)

*This is the fourth and final article in a series that discussed terminology in sensory integration theory, practice, and research. Reaching a consensus in terminology is a difficult process that has only just begun, and these commentaries identify some of the many questions that still remain.

 

Incidence of pre-, peri-, and post-natal birth and developmental problems of children with sensory processing disorder and children with autism spectrum disorder (pdf)

*The purpose of this study was to conduct an exploratory examination of the incidence of potential pregnancy, birth and early childhood risk factors in children with ASD and SPD.

 

Goal Attainment Scaling as a Measure of Meaningful Outcomes for Children With Sensory Integration Disorders (pdf)

*This article identifies the recent and current applications of Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) to occupational therapy for children with sensory integration dysfunction, as well as the process, usefulness, and problems of application of the GAS methodology to this population.

 

Fidelity in Sensory Integration Intervention Research (pdf)

*We sought to assess validity of sensory integration outcomes research in relation to fidelity (faithfulness of intervention to underlying therapeutic principles).

 

Development of an Assessment for Ideational Praxis (pdf)

*This study developed an assessment of ideational praxis, examined its psychometric properties, and analyzed age and gender trends in children who were typically developing.

 

Identifying Gravitational Insecurity in Children: A Pilot Study (pdf)

*This study developed an observational assessment of gravitational insecurity (GI), the GI Assessment, and examined its preliminary reliability and validity evidence.

 

Examining Coping Skills in Children with SI Dysfunction (pdf)

*An examination of coping skills in the efficacy of sensory integrative intervention may be a more appropriate outcome measure than ability-level outcomes such as motor performance and sensory functions, which may have resulted in inconsistent findings in previous efficacy studies.

 

Praxis is More Than Just Motor Planning (pdf)

*This article presents a model for clinical reasoning to assist the occupational therapist in undersanding the theoretical and intervention considerations necessary for addressing praxis problems.

 

AOTA’s Centennial Vision and the Sensory Integration Frame of Reference (pdf)

*This article summarizes the research of a group of scientists and clinicians who are working both collaboratively and independently to advance occupational therapy’s body of knowledge in sensory integration.

 

Collaborative Research Programs in Sensory Integration and Processing (pdf)

*This article summarizes the research of a group of scientists and clinicians who are working both collaboratively and independently to advance occupational therapy’s body of knowledge in sensory integration.

 

A Strategic Plan for Research (pdf)

*To advance our professional standards of excellence and to meet the imperatives for occupational therapy research, the profession is challenged to provide a firm foundation of research that supports practice.

 

Occupational Therapy for Adults with Sensory Processing Disorder (pdf)

*Many adults have sensory processing disorders that make daily activities challenging or even impossible. This personalized, intensive protocol is tailored to adults and designed for quick results.

 

Praxis Assessment for the Busy Therapist - PPT Lecture (pdf)

*This 1 hour lecture introduces three brief assessments for praxis, the TIP, the Assessment of Imitation, and the Motor Planning Maze Assessment.

Evidence Brief for Neurophysiologic Evidence for Sensory-Based Therapy (pdf)

*This brief covers the evidence for using a sensory-based approach in occupational therapy with children and adolescents. Compiled by the AOTA Evidence-Based Literature Review Project.

 

Evidence Brief for Different Sensory Processing and Integration Problems (pdf)

*This brief covers the evidence for the existence of different types of sensory processing/sensory integration problems in children and adolescents. Compiled by the AOTA Evidence-Based Literature Review Project.

 

Difficulties in Children and Adolescents with Sensory Processing Disorders  (pdf)      

*This Critically Appraised Topic defines performance difficulties for individuals with sensory processing disorders in order to effectively target occupational therapy interventions. Compiled by the AOTA Evidence-Based Literature Review Project.

 

Evidence Brief for SI Intervention  (pdf)      

*This brief covers the evidence for Sensory Integration Intervention. Compiled by the AOTA Evidence-Based Literature Review Project.

 

Evidence Brief for Other Interventions  (pdf)

*This evidence brief covers the evidence for other interventions for sensory-motor problems. Compiled by the AOTA Evidence-Based Literature Review Project.

 

Evidence Brief for Autism and Other Disorders  (pdf)

*This evidence brief covers the evidence for use of sensory integration intervention and other sensory interventions with children with autism and other disorders.

 

Evidence Brief for Wilbarger Protocol  (pdf)

*This evidence brief covers the evidence for use of the Wilbarger Therapressure Protocol.
