Today at OT our therapist added a new activity to our regimen. The paper says Deep pressure Proprioceptive technique (wilbarger protocol) It involves using a soft bristle brush to rub against arms, hands, back, legs and feet followed by 'bone-popping' every 90 min to 2 hours at home. I say while at home because he does go to school during the day, when he is hoe on weekends and whatnot we do it the every 2 hours. Has anyone else tried this and what exactly did it help with??

They had me do this with my oldest. It is to help with sensory issues. I don't remember exactly how it is supposed to help besides giving the child sensory input which can help calm sensory issues. It worked wonders on my son, it helped calm him down so he could focus and attend to what he was doing instead of bouncing off furniture.
