    Details

    A brush that was specially designed for the Wilbarger Protocol brushing program. Should be used under the guidance of a therapist trained in their proper use.

    The Wilbarger Deep Pressure and Proprioceptive Technique (formerly referred to as the Wilbarger Brushing Protocol or WBP) is a therapy program designed to reduce sensory or tactile defensiveness. Children who exhibit symptoms of tactile defensiveness are extremely sensitive to touch. This can cause a fear or resistance to being touched, difficulty transitioning between activities, and/or lethargy. The therapy was developed by Patricia Wilbarger, MEd, OTR, FAOTA.

    There is not much documented research on the Wilbarger Protocol. However, many parents of children with autism have reported seeing decreases in sensory defensiveness and anxiety as a result of using this technique. Some of the benefits of the Wilbarger Protocol may include improved ability to transition between daily activities, improved attention span, a decreased fear or discomfort of being touched, enhanced coordination, and self-regulation.

    Brushes and handles are sold separately.
