Difficulties in processing and integrating sensory information can have an effect on occupational performance and behavior in the daily lives of children and youth. Services for pediatric clients are influenced by a range of legislative and funding policies. Occupational therapy practitioners working in various pediatric practice settings need knowledge of the differences between these approaches and the provisions of the funding resources in order to best meet the sensory processing and integration needs of their clients in various contexts.
After reading this article, you should be able to:
- Identify the differences between Ayres’ sensory integration intervention and sensory-based strategies.
- Recognize provisions of legislative and funding policies for pediatric occupational therapy services.
- Recognize differences between supporting pediatric clients with sensory needs in educational versus clinical contexts.
