Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This course highlights developments and findings in a neuroscience study as they relate to OT for children and adolescents with ASD. The presenters discuss findings from an ongoing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study that investigates the neural basis of how children with ASD imitate social and motor stimuli. Study results can be used to inform clinical approaches for research-informed client-centered OT interventions.
