Re: "brushing" or the Wilbarger Technique

I do the brushing!!! My son's OT taught us how and gave us the brush and he loves it!!! We actually did it like every hour for weeks to retrain his sesory system and we had wonderful results! We follow brushing with joint compressions too. My son loves it and they even brush him at school. We also use the Wilbarger oral motor protocal for before meals and before toothbrushing where you rub your finger along the back of their teeth and push down on the bottom teeth 3 times.

We also do the compressions. DS LOVES it. We haven't been taught the oral motor protocol, though. Alex's sleep schedule is so off right now because he was sick. I'm hoping we see more results regularly as he gets back on schedule!
