Immediate effect of Ayres's sensory integration--based occupational therapy intervention on children with autism spectrum disorders

Author(s):Jean Dietz and Renee L. Watling
AJOT
OBJECTIVE. This study examined the effects of Ayres's sensory
integration intervention on the behavior and task engagement
of young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Clinical
observations and caregiver reports of behavior and engagement
also were explored to help guide future investigations.
METHOD. This single-subject study used an ABAB design to
compare the immediate effect of Ayres's sensory integration
 and a play scenario on the undesired behavior and task
engagement of 4 children with ASD.
RESULTS. No clear patterns of change in undesired behavior
 or task management emerged through objective measurement.
Subjective data suggested that each child exhibited
positive changes during and after intervention.
CONCLUSION. When effects are measured immediately 
after intervention, short-term Ayres's sensory integration 
does not have a substantially different effect than 
a play scenario on undesired behavior or engagement 
of young children with ASD. However, subjective data
 suggest that Ayres's sensory integration may produce
 an effect that is evident during treatment sessions 
and in home environments.
