Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

Oral health is integral to physical and psychological well-being. In this study, we describe the behavioral and physiological distress experienced by children with autism spectrum disorder (cASD) during dental cleanings, and we suggest that occupational therapists (OTs) be part of the multidisciplinary team to address these challenges.
