Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This study explores whether sensorimotor strategies embedded in activity in a classroom have an effect on attention and in-seat behaviors in preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder. Providing sensorimotor strategies in the classroom experience can give children the opportunity to increase participation and self-regulatory behavior while improving attention for optimal performance in the least restrictive environment.
