The Willbarger Protocol - 2 views

  • is a specific, professionally guided treatment regime designed to reduce sensory defensiveness. The Wilbarger Protocol has its origins in sensory integration theory, and it has evolved through clinical use
  • a lack of documented research to substantiate this technique
