Early Identification of Sensory Processing Difficulties in High-Risk Infants

This article examines a group of infants identified as high-risk for sensory processing disorder (SPD) due to having siblings with identified sensory processing difficulties. The authors conducted comparisons between infants at high and low-risk for SPD with the goal of establishing risk factors to better inform health care professionals and identify difficulties early on. Findings suggest that infants in the high-risk group were more likely to demonstrate differences in cognitive and language skills, movement, and sensory processing. Conclusions discuss that these areas should be monitored to optimize occupational performance. Click here to read the abstract or login to your AOTA account to view the full article.

What they’re saying…

The ability to participate in this intervention program was a blessing! I am so thankful for the opportunity.

Dr. Teresa May-Benson is an excellent teacher, she is brilliant, well organized and is passionate about the topics she presents.

This class was phenomenal. I had no idea it would present such in-depth information that directly pertains to my practice and covers more explicit in-depth neuro, functional information and sensory pragmatics than my courses in my OT training. Thank you!

Loved Sue! She did a great job explaining a difficult and detailed topic in a short period of time! Would go to any future courses taught by her. I am certified in SI and have also taken refresher theory and treatment courses, but this course was exceptional. The material was easy to follow and presented in a clear manner, making it memorable and immediately clinically applicable.
