Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Oral care activities, especially toothbrushing, are habitual occupations often perceived as mundane or predictable. However, for children with ASD, performing routine dental activities can be challenging. The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the particularities in how oral care activities, such as toothbrushing, were performed by children.
