During this webinar, editors Bailliard, Engel-Yeger, Dunn, and Brown will provide an overview of their eBook Meaningful Participation and Sensory Processing published in Frontiers in Psychology. The book consists of 15 peer-reviewed research articles that present innovative perspectives on the relationship between sensory processing, meaningful occupation, inclusion, and community integration. The collection encourages readers to view sensory processing as central to everyday human experiences and occupations. It also demonstrates that humans have natural variations in sensory processing patterns that lead to their subsequent inclusion or exclusion from occupations in human-built sensory environments. Panel discussion among the editors will synthesize the articles comprising the eBook and will discuss implications for research, clinical practice, and education in occupational therapy.
Describe how sensory processing patterns can differ across groups and individuals and how those differences can lead to differences in participation in occupation.
Describe the ebook’s clinical implications for occupational therapy practice
