Pediatric chronic headache and its associated hypersensitivities to light and sound significantly disrupt participation in daily occupations. This study examined the effectiveness of auditory and visual desensitization through an exposure approach. Promising results indicate significant reduction in symptoms and significant improvement in functioning. OTs should strongly consider using desensitization to treat and manage pediatric headache–related hypersensitivities.
