She worked with a patient who had difficulty with fine motor skills. She developed a therapy plan that included activities such as cutting with scissors, threading beads, and playing with puzzles. The patient’s fine motor skills improved significantly, and he was able to participate in activities that he had previously been unable to do.
She worked with a patient who had autism spectrum disorder. She used sensory integration therapy to help the patient reduce his sensitivity to noise and touch. The patient’s meltdowns decreased in frequency and severity, and he was able to better interact with his peers.
