Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This study furthered an initial protocol in which the Cognitive Orientation to Occupational Performance Approach (CO–OP) was blended with virtual reality. Blending the two may be synergistic and may better meet the specific motor needs of children with autism spectrum disorder. Views from a group of clinicians were assembled, and these views guided protocol refinement. The protocol is ready for pilot testing.
