Comparison of Effectiveness of Home Based Sensory Interventions Along With Standard Therapy Versus Standard Therapy Alone in Autistic Children With Sensory Processing Abnormalities

2015-07-09 08:38:24 | BioPortfolio


Around 69-95% of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder are known to have sensory processing abnormalities .Tackling these problems would help in better quality of life, both for the parents and the children. Sensory integration therapy, an individualized clinic based therapy have been shown to have a positive effect on those children with sensory abnormalities. Hence the investigators are doing this study , to primarily look into the efficacy and feasibility of home based sensory interventions in autistic children with sensory processing abnormalities.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Behavioral science applied with the aim of improving socially important issues such as behavior problems and learning. For individuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities including AUTISM, techniques can be categorized as comprehensive or focused.

Clusters of neurons in the somatic peripheral nervous system which contain the cell bodies of sensory nerve axons. Sensory ganglia may also have intrinsic interneurons and non-neuronal supporting cells.

The ability of the BRAIN to suppress neuronal responses to external sensory inputs, such as auditory and visual stimuli. Sensory filtering (or gating) allows humans to block out irrelevant, meaningless, or redundant stimuli.

Specialized afferent neurons capable of transducing sensory stimuli into NERVE IMPULSES to be transmitted to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Sometimes sensory receptors for external stimuli are called exteroceptors; for internal stimuli are called interoceptors and proprioceptors.

Devices that help people with impaired sensory responses.
