My 6 year old son started O/T nearly 2 months ago and I asked the therapist what positive changes I would see but she didn't really answer my question and just said if we use the sensory diet and brushing technique then we would see an improvement in his behaviours. She doesn't seem to want to actually address the specific areas we have trouble with and just talks in broad terms of children with an ASD. We have trouble with the boys being able to regulate themselves and because they seek a lot of sensory input they behave in inappropriate ways at certain places and at certain times. At this stage I have not noticed any kind of improvement. What has been your experience with O/T and have you found it has helped in anyway??
