Product Description

The Wilbarger Brushing Protocol is a technique developed by Patricia Wilbarger, MEd, OTR, FAOTA, and was designed as a tool to assist individuals who are very sensitive to sensory stimulation. This specific protocol has been shown to decrease sensitivity to sensory stimuli, if done under the supervision of an Occupational Therapist.

 

This brush by Wilbarger is latex free with the easy to hold ergomatic handle that helps to provide maximum results.  Brushing provides deep pressure or "proprioception" which helps to increase alertness, calm, and focus.  These firm but gentle flexible plastic brushes will help you achieve encouraging results with your child's sensory development.

This technique can be used at home, but it always suggested to be taught first by an Wilbarger-trained Occupational Therapist. If this has not been prescribed by your therapist, ask your therapist if you think this technique might benefit your child, and request training, as adverse effects have been found if done by someone who is not trained in the proper protocol. 

Item is available for pick-up in the Dallas, TX, area to avoid shipping costs.

    My Child's Favorite!

    Posted by Katrina on 27th Jan 2015

    This one simple, inexpensive little tool provides so much benefit, and is my child's favorite by far. I ordered one for an extra at home and one for the classroom. It's an effective, unobtrusive way to provide a very calming effect quickly and easily.
