Children with ASD often present with sensory processing disorder that significantly impacts sensory-motor function, social communication and behavior, and participation in age-appropriate activities at school, home or in the community. This course provides an overview of sensory processing disorder in ASD, identifies appropriate tests and measures, and presents strategies to support the sensory needs of this population. This introductory course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
