Autism Treatment



Occupational therapy is what people do to occupy their time, children occupy their time by playing and in turn playing is the precursor for learning.

A person who has autism often has trouble communicating and interacting with other people. The person’s interests, activities and play skills may be limited.

Occupational therapy service is offered as a service to help individual with Autism to gain their ability to participate in everyday situations and/or activities. Occupational therapy service in our centre is limited to the individuals with autism for:

1. Improving the functional activities: ( fine motor, visual motor, perceptual motor skill)
2. Sensory Integration:


The term” Sensory Integration” refers to the way the brain organizes sensations for engagement in occupation.

We have seven senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, taste, balance and body in space) most of us unconsciously learn to combine our senses in order to make sense of our environment. Children with autism have trouble learning to do this. Consequently their play schemes are limited to the few habitual manners they use when interacting with the world.

Sensory integration therapy is based on the assumption that the child is either over- or under stimulated by the environment. Therefore .the aim of sensory integration therapy is to improve the sensory processing capabilities of the brain so the child will function more adaptively in his/her daily activities.

Sensory integration therapy is provided in an environment created specifically for the individual to provide them with a variety of sensory opportunities that adhere to the sensory integration fidelity.

As each child with autism is unique and so each autism intervention plan should be tailored to address specific needs, so at my centre Sensory integration therapy is provided as direct one-to –one therapy .
