Sensory Processing Disorder Recognized
by the Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders

For a list of some of the diagnostic code numbers, click here (PDF).

Occupational Therapists work with children who have Sensory Processing Disorder and who have co-existing diagnoses so they may bill for their services by the other diagnoses.

Many Occupation Therapists are able to give parents claim forms for Occupational Therapy services. Sensory Integration therapy is one of the things that can provided to the child under an OT's license along with the ability to give insurance claim forms to patients. The child, however, must be billed with a diagnosis other than Sensory Processing Disorder or Autism. Read more about Insurance Questions for Occupational Therapy.

Sensory Processing Disorder is now recognized in one diagnostic taxonomy - the new Diagnostic Manual of the Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders (ICDL). Dr. Stanley I. Greenspan is Chair of ICDL. The formal diagnostic category is "Regulatory Sensory Processing Disorder," (code #200). The manual lists similar (but not exact) classifications to those Dr. Lucy Jane Miller proposed based on research.

The complete chapter describing the new diagnostic categories is in the Diagnostic Manual for Infancy and Early Childhood Mental Health, Developmental, Regulatory-Sensory Processing, Language and Learning Disorders, available at

While SPD is not yet in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), inclusion in ICDL's diagnostic manual means we are on our way to having more professionals recognize SPD as a legitimate disorder. This is a huge achievement! Dr. Miller thanks Shelly Lane, Sharon Cermak, Beth Osten and Marie Anzalone who worked tirelessly for two years to make this a reality!
