The Design of a Therapy Garment for Preschool Children With Sensory Integration Dysfunction
- Sherry J. Haar (Kansas State University)
- Joann F. Boles (Virginia Tech)
A design process developed by Joann Boles was used to develop a therapy garment for three four-year-old boys with sensory integrative dysfunction who participated in occupational therapy using sensory integrative methods. The design process framework had four stages: (a) problem development, (b) needs assessment, (c) prototype development, and (d) evaluation. The problem was developed through observations, interviews, experiences, and literature review.
