Occupational Therapy (OT) Part 3
– Wilbarger Therapressure Brushing Programme
Friday 29 June 10am-12noon
The Wilbarger Protocol is a deep pressure technique used with students who have sensory defensiveness. The purpose is to alter and normalise sensory processing which will assist with the students ability to function within the school setting and impact on the students social and work behaviours. (reference: sensoryprocessingdisorderparentsupport.com)
During this session parents will be shown how to correctly use the brushing technique with their child. We will discuss what tactile defensiveness is and how to identify it.
