Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy aims to enhance an individual’s functional abilities, promote independence, and help them engage more fully in their daily life activities while considering their unique strengths and challenges associated with autism.
Occupational therapists play a crucial role in supporting autistic children by addressing their sensory, motor, and behavioral challenges.
Some of the key areas where occupational therapy can help autistic children are following:
  • Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT)
  • Fine and gross motor skills development 
  • Activities of daily living (ADLS) and self care skills 
  • Social and play skills 
  • Environmental modifications and activity analysis
Sensory Integration Therapy

Sensory Integration Therapy is an approach commonly used in occupational therapy to address sensory processing difficulties, which are often prevalent in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).Sensory Integration Therapy helps autistic children by addressing their sensory processing challenges and helping them develop more effective ways of processing and responding to sensory stimuli.

Sensory integration therapy can help in following areas:

  • Improving sensory regulation/emotional regulation
  • Reducing sensory overload and teaching coping mechanisms
  • Foster the development of higher brain functions and motor skills
