What are your thoughts?

Efficacy of Sensory-based Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Pilot Study An Occupational Therapist working in a pre-school program used the SymTrend data collection app to collect data about a student’s out-of-seat behavior during circle time activities. She wanted to record and report data about the effectiveness of interventions she was going to try to increase in-seat behavior. The child was in a substantially separate classroom for children with ASD ages 5-6 years. Her study demonstrated the effectiveness of her sensory-based intervention to increase in-seat behavior.
