The purpose of this thesis is to offer children with Sensory Processing Disorder and their families solutions to everyday sensory processing challenges. Interviews conducted with occupational therapists offer insight into treatment. Ways in which supports in the home, in occupational therapy, play, and other areas of children’s lives can help children living with SPD are researched and discussed. The goal is to help children better regulate their sensory processing and feel empowered in the process.
