The home program is for a 2 year old girl who have deficts
Sensory Processing and Modulation
o Heavy work activities that require the use of Mikayla’s muscles will promote her
proprioceptive processing and help modulate her sensory system in general (see attached
“Heavywork Activities” (for Caregivers and Teachers) handouts).
Tactile Processing and Modulation
Note: Proprioceptive and deep pressure activities should be completed before having Mikayla
engage in tactile activities to help promote her modulation and regulation for success with new
and/or challenging textures and activities such as brushing or washing her hair.
o Have Mikayla trial new textures only when she can see what she is going to touch. Try
familiar foods and objects with a slight change (one change at a time), for example,
progress from playing with or hunting for objects in dry pasta noodles of a certain
size/shape, then changing or mixing sizes/shapes, then slightly cooking noodles, then
cooking them more. This can be done with beans, Jell-O, Play-doh, therapy putty, etc. . .
