Proprioception Information

David Brown, from the California Deaf-Blind Services, has written an excellent article on proprioception. It is informative and well written. The focus of the article is on children who are deaf and blind but the information is suitable for any child with sensory processing disorder. There are some great examples of how to explain proprioception deficits (i.e. leg falling asleep and actions you take to wake it up). The article explains the proprioceptive sense, what happens when it is not working properly and what can be done to help. You can download the article below or here.

Hi, David Brown here! I just found this site and want to say how thrilled I am to get such good feedback from an OT/PT group. I have been a teacher all my life, but sadly I have also been an OT/PT wannabee most of my life too! Your positive report on my article really means a lot to me, so thank you. The article that you mention is one of a series of 6 that I wrote for Deafblind International Review, and they are all now posted on our California Deaf-Blind Services website (go to www.cadbs.org and then click on "Publications").
