Hi there,


I've never heard of this technique (Wilbarger Brushing Protocol) and am intrigued to find out more. My son has high functioning autism and also has lots of sensory issues which can dominate his life on a daily basis.

We live in a town called Skipton, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales!, and unfortunately never get any offer of support from an Occupational Therapist. I would pay for an OT but just can't afford it. So I would love to train how to do this properly.

Do you know anywhere near where I live where I could train to do this on my son?

Many thanks & much appreciated.

how to brush

my grandson has SPD...the brushing technique is very good for sensory kids....it is the little surgical brush soft and can be held comfortably in your hand. basically you brush in long swipes about 7 up and down the outside of the arms then the inside, then the legs the same way, then the bottom of feet the palms of the hands and then the back...DO NOT touch the stomach or face....Basically while they are busy watching TV or playing just remove their clothing and comfortably brush....They might resist at first, or they might love it....it stimulates all the senses, and they become more active after, but it works....Try it in the AM and lunch and mid day....Also look in the SPD web and they will tell you more...good luck.
