Incarceration exposes individuals to a negative combination of sensory deprivation and sensory overstimulation, which has serious health consequences. The Sensory Profile (SP) was administered to 345 men and women residing in a corrections facility and who participated in OT programming. This presentation will illustrate how the SP data discriminate and then discuss the implications for using the SP in justice settings and designing appropriate intervention based on SP data.
