by Whitten, Maggie, M.A., Trinity Christian College, 2018, 29; 10808115
Abstract (Summary)

This research is a case study in which the effects of sensory input are evaluated on one student with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT) is often used as a part of treatment programming for individuals with autism. This research aims to evaluate a correlation between sensory input and its effects on transition latency. Sensory input was given to the student prior to his first work session of each day. Data was taken on how long it took the student to begin working following the input and prompt to work. Throughout the research two additional factors were considered; the function of the student’s behavior and the element of choice. This research suggests that by looking at sensory input, but adding the elements of behavioral function and individual choice, this research may arouse further research of SIT.
