    An OT would be able to help with sensory issues however if your sensitivities are part of a wider condition it would help the OT to have that diagnosis (from a psych) so they can more easily determine the most appropriate treatment plan (different conditions may require slightly different approaches).

    Also, a diagnosis from a psych can open doors to additional therapies down the track (if needed).

    Yep that's right. Not saying the OT wouldn't help, it's just the psychologist is just the first step
