Treating SPD Through OT Protocols
Occupational therapists have a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to treating patients with Sensory Processing Disorder. These tricks go by different names: Wilbarger DTTP, Astronaut Training, Therapeutic Listening, Interactive Metronome, etc. Each of these ‘tricks’ is actually a thoroughly researched and developed treatment protocol designed specifically to help treat innefficient sensory processing in people.
