Role of movement oriented program on sensory process related to children with autism


Author(s): Sunil Bhatt, Dr. Jogiswer Goswami and Dr. Ajit Kumar

Abstract: With autism spectrum disorders often exhibit co-occurring sensory processing problems and receive interventions that target self-regulation. Sensory interventions and sensory integration therapy are currently being used on practice with effectiveness. Sensory integration therapy as a clinical approach have been able to improve adaptive response to sensory issues but leaving a gap for development of variety of sensory modalities for which intervention approach is being considered as a preferable model in recent practices. Currently, sensory based intervention approaches are characterized as classroom based single-sensory intervention strategies. Alternative use of movement concepts as an intervention strategy following protocols based on movements can be effective for targeting wide variety of sensory processing problems among the autistic children. Movement concepts through locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative movement can be effective for distinct disorders of autism including of Asperger Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, and Williams Syndrome. The proposed intervention program can develop on exploring of existing potentials with autistic and use their capabilities of concrete and literal thinking, obsession with certain objects and subjects, excellent memories, and being 'eccentric.' These movement activities are considered high-functioning and are capable of holding and supporting to make the child independently capable at later stage of life.
