Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2018

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of alternative seating on attention and in-seat behavior of preschoolers with autism. Preliminary results indicate that alternative seating was effective in improving attention. Results advance the profession as school therapists may recommend alternative seating.
