Sensory Defensiveness and Sensory Diet
Sensory Defensiveness and Sensory Diet, a concept named
by Occupational Therapist Patricia Wilbarger OTR, FAOTA,
MEd, is an individualized program of specific sensory input
or stimuli to an individual’s brain channels in action, 24/7.
Through an OT’s assessment driven program, reduction or
enhancement of identified sensory input is pursued.
Through reduction of ambient, unnecessary  stimuli that may
distract and interfere with daily life; or through enhancement
of deficient stimuli; increased focus, attention, organization
and learning is achieved.
