Summary


One of the major factors for developmental delay in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is reduced capacity for sensory processing. Sensory integration therapy (SIT) addresses sensory processing challenges in children with autism, by providing controlled sensory experiences. Through tailored activities and exercises, such as movement, tactile stimulation and deep pressure, the therapy aims to improve sensory processing skills, self-regulation and participation in daily activities.
