Sensory Integration and the Child

Sensory integration is one of the most highly utilized interventions in autism, however, a lack of consensus exists regarding its evidence base. An increasing number of studies are investigating the effectiveness of this approach.

A systematic review was conducted in three stages. Searches yielded 19 studies that were evaluated in Stage 2. Prior to analysis using CEC standards, three articles were excluded because intervention details were not consistent with the core principles of ASI, or because of major methodological flaws.

Autism Research , 6— Ayres Sensory Integration intervention is one of the most frequently requested and highly utilized interventions in autism. This intervention has specific requirements for therapist qualifications and the process of therapy.

Additionally, methodologically sound studies must meet the quality indicators relevant to their research design. However, despite the high utilization of ASI for children who receive special education, there is lack of consensus regarding its evidence base. Consequently, the conclusions of many of these prior reviews are inaccurate and misrepresentative. Individualization of intervention based on the child's assessment findings is absent or very limited, and passive cooperation is required of the child, rather than active collaboration with the therapist.

This is particularly evident in Lang et al. Schaaf et al. For instance, Barton et al. Finally, outcomes measured in existing studies vary widely and may not be sensitive to the changes expected following ASI intervention.

One previous review suggests that only measures of sensory and motor skills are impacted by this intervention [Weitlauf et al.

Given that the weakness in most prior reviews has interfered with an accurate appraisal of the evidence for ASI, the publication of the CEC standards presents an opportunity to critically evaluate the evidence in a rigorous and standardized way. Unlike Weitlauf et al. Additionally, only the CEC standards and quality indicators QIs were used to determine which studies met the methodological features needed to assure confidence in study findings.

To answer this question, we conducted a systematic review of research studies that examined effectiveness of ASI intervention for children with ASD. This systematic review was completed in three stages. The first stage involved a series of electronic database searches to locate potentially relevant studies.

The second stage involved selection of studies using specific inclusion criteria related to methodology and description of the intervention. The third stage involved evaluation of included studies using the CEC standards [Cook et al.

Next, we delimited our search to articles published after since this coincides with initial identification and articulation of the key structural and process elements of sensory integration intervention which became available for use by researchers and provide a guide for evaluating studies that meet ASI principles [Parham et al.

We searched literature through Search terms addressed three broad content areas that were required of studies to be selected for analysis: condition, intervention, and study design.

Condition refers to developmental conditions of study participants that suggest the presence of sensory integration problems. For this content area, we used search terms and Boolean phrases that are consistent with sensory integrative difficulties or sensory processing disorders, e. The intervention content area refers to terms consistent with therapeutic strategies, tools, and constructs incorporated into ASI intervention.

Search terms and structure varied to some extent across databases due to unique requirements of each database. The strategy used in Medline is presented in the Search Strategy for Medline Table, found in supplemental materials.

An iterative process of record reduction was conducted using the above search process. A total of 6, references were retrieved initially, reduced to 4, after removing duplicates. Title and abstract review resulted in exclusion of articles that did not meet the following criterion, which addresses all three key content areas: an intervention study that addresses sensory issues of children with autism.

After the initial filtering, two authors SAS and SJL reviewed article titles, abstracts, and when necessary, full texts, to screen for articles that met the criterion. Additionally, hand searching was conducted of reference lists from final articles to ensure thoroughness; no additional articles were identified that fully met the criterion. At the end of Stage One screening, 19 studies remained. Exclusion Criteria.

ABAB reversal designs were not included because the removal of ASI intervention is not expected to produce a return to baseline performance or behavior. Consistency with ASI intervention principles was determined by examining the description of the intervention to determine its adherence to the principles of ASI as described in seminal works such as Ayres [ , ], Bundy et al.

Evidence of adherence to the principles described in the ASI Fidelity Measure was considered although the specific use of the measure was not required in order for the study to be included in the Stage Three review process. Furthermore, at this stage, studies were required to include participants with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder ASD or pervasive developmental disorder PDD who had an IQ above At the end of Stage Two, six articles remained.

Experience ranged from 34 to 42 years; all held an academic position and four of the seven were also active in clinical practice. All of the reviewers had experience in designing and conducting research, had completed advanced training in sensory integration including theory and intervention, and were trained in the use of the ASI Fidelity Measure.

To reduce the risk of bias, each of the six remaining articles was reviewed and rated independently by at least two reviewers. Three of the six reviewed papers were excluded from further analysis because the intervention description was inconsistent or insufficient to be confidently considered ASI intervention, or because of significant methodological concerns.

Of note, all three studies that were excluded reported positive results for the intervention. Each of the eight QIs is operationalized using specific criteria that can be rated to evaluate the methodological rigor of an intervention research study. No reviewers rated a study in which they were an investigator, author, or consultant. Cook, personal communication, August 26 and September 22, to clarify interpretation of QI details.

The reviewers independently provided a yes or no rating for each QI criterion and wrote a short summary justifying each rating. Occasional discrepancies between raters were discussed and resolved using a modified Delphi process. Items 6. Copyright by the Council for Exceptional Children.

For experimental group comparison studies, the CEC Standards use effect size rather than statistical significance to evaluate the strength of the findings, since statistical significance is influenced by the sample size. Effect size is preferable because it takes into account the meaningfulness of the outcomes for the population being studied. These studies are presented in alphabetical order below. Iwanaga et al. The mean age of participants in each group was 4 years 8 months at the beginning of intervention, and 5 years 6 months at the end of intervention.

The group therapy was administered by a team of therapists and educators; however, their specific qualifications are not presented. The intervention process is adequately described and clearly is consistent with the principles of ASI. The key features of the comparison treatment are also delineated, but fidelity checks are not reported for either group.

It provides sensory, motor, verbal, nonverbal, complex tasks, and total scores. Results indicate positive and statistically significant gains for the ASI group on five of the six outcome measures; effect sizes are not reported but can be calculated from the data.

The average effect size that was calculated using eta squared is 0. Pfeiffer et al. Ages were 6—12 years old, with a mean age of 8. Sensory integration difficulties were confirmed for all participants through a complete evaluation prior to beginning intervention. Interventionists were trained in their respective interventions via didactic training aligned with the appropriate fidelity measure.

Researchers and raters were blinded to group membership. Four children did not complete the study, and one received one less treatment session than all others.

The primary outcome measure Goal Attainment Scale [GAS] is socially relevant, as goals were set by parents and teachers, and were measured according to best practice guidelines for GAS. However, the average of these three effect sizes is 0. Randomized blocks were used to maximize equivalence of groups for cognitive status and severity of ASD. An accepted estimate of SES is report of parent education level.

The study describes manualized training of the interventionists to provide ASI intervention with strong fidelity. Fidelity was monitored regularly throughout intervention with the number of fidelity checks reduced as fidelity met criterion level. All participants assigned to ASI received a full assessment of sensory integration, enabling interventionists to individualize treatment.

Results indicated statistically significant group differences favoring the ASI group. The average effect size is 0.

The age range presented in these studies is inclusive of children who are typically referred to occupational therapy for ASI intervention. Specifically, Pfeiffer et al. Both studies were randomized clinical trials, had positive outcomes, and collectively had a total of 69 participants. Effect size averages across measures in the Schaaf study were well above the What Works Clearinghouse [ ] threshold for a desirable effect size, recommended by authors of the CEC Standards as a starting point for considering whether intervention effects are meaningful.

Pfeiffer study effect sizes were slightly below the 0. A third study [Iwanaga et al. The intervention frequency varied across studies; Pfeiffer participants received therapy three times per week for 6 weeks, Schaaf study participants received therapy three times per week for 10 weeks and for the Iwanaga study participants received therapy once a week for 36—40 weeks.

This range, from 18 to 40 sessions, is not uncommon in pediatric occupational therapy practice as there are no definitive guidelines to guide dosage.

Positive results for even the lower dose of therapy suggest the need for further study of an optimal frequency and intensity of intervention. Effect sizes, while respectable, also varied across studies because each used a different effect size calculation; Schaaf et al. Although this study focused on the CEC Guidelines, findings here are supported through application of other published guidelines as well.

The Pfeiffer et al. Preventive Services Task Force criteria for strong evidence. This study was not included in the current review because it was published after the inclusion criteria date range. Interesting, although not subjected to a full review, this study clearly meets many of the CEC quality indicators described earlier. For example, this was a randomized controlled trial of children with autism who received intervention consistent with the principles of ASI and had positive outcomes that impacted their participation in daily life activities and routines.

Understanding Sensory Integration

Michael is a third grade student who is waiting for the school bus. He is challenged by sensory experiences during everyday activities that most of us don't even think about. While he's still reeling from the battle with his mom over brushing his teeth that peppermint toothpaste tastes like fire in his mouth the school bus pulls up. Michael runs past the bus monitor's haze of perfume and sits at the back of the bus. In his heightened state, he becomes even more aware of his new school shirt with its stiff label and that awful feeling like a wire brush being poked into the back of his neck.

The theory and practice of ASI continues to evolve as greater understanding of the neurobiology of human behavior emerges. In this paper we examine core constructs of ASI identified in the seminal work of Dr. Jean Ayres, and present current neuroscience research that underlies the main patterns of sensory integration function and dysfunction. We close by proposing neuroplasticity as the mechanisms underlying change as a result of ASI intervention. Jean Ayres 18 July —16 December was an occupational therapist and neuropsychologist who spent her career conducting research and developing theory and intervention strategies to help her understand and treat children with learning and behavioral challenges. Ayres relied heavily on neuroscience literature to guide her understanding of previously-unexamined sensory and motor deficits affecting learning and behavior.

 - Еще не было случая, чтобы в моих данных появлялись ошибки. Поэтому я хочу узнать мнение специалиста. - Что ж, - сказал Джабба, - мне неприятно первым тебя разочаровать, но твои данные неверны. - Ты так думаешь. - Могу биться об заклад.  - Он откусил кусок пирога и заговорил с набитым ртом.  - Максимальное время, которое ТРАНСТЕКСТ когда-либо тратил на один файл, составляет три часа.

У пистолета куда большая дальность действия, чем у полутораметрового подсвечника. Халохот двигался быстро, но осторожно. Ступени были настолько крутыми, что на них нашли свою смерть множество туристов. Это вам не Америка - никаких предупреждающих знаков, никаких поручней, никаких табличек с надписями, что страховые компании претензий не принимают. Это Испания. Если вы по глупости упадете, то это будет ваша личная глупость, кто бы ни придумал эти ступени.

Она встретила эти слова с явным неодобрением. - Я все проверяю дважды. - Ну… ты знаешь, как они говорят о компьютерах.

Она поняла: все дело в деньгах. Она перенеслась мыслями в тот вечер, когда президент Джорджтаунского университета предложил Дэвиду повышение - должность декана факультета лингвистики. Президент объяснил, что преподавательских часов будет меньше, бумажной работы больше, - но гораздо выше будет и жалованье. Сьюзан хотелось закричать: Дэвид, не соглашайся. Это не принесет тебе радости.

Джабба шумно вздохнул. - Нет, Мидж. Это абсолютно исключено. - Спасибо.

Беккер молча ждал выстрела, который должен оборвать его жизнь. ГЛАВА 89 Лучи утреннего солнца едва успели коснуться крыш Севильи и лабиринта узких улочек под. Колокола на башне Гиральда созывали людей на утреннюю мессу.

Если вы думаете, что можно ввести шестьсот миллионов ключей за сорок пять минут, то пожалуйста. - Ключ находится в Испании, - еле слышно произнесла Сьюзан, и все повернулись к. Это были ее первые слова за очень долгое время. Сьюзан подняла голову.

Управлять всей информацией в мире. И ТРАНСТЕКСТ больше не нужен. Никаких ограничений - только свободная информация. Это шанс всей вашей жизни. И вы хотите его упустить.

 Так или иначе, - парировала Сьюзан, - теперь мы имеем параноиков из Фонда электронных границ, уверенных, что черный ход есть во всех наших алгоритмах. - А это не так? - язвительно заметил Хейл. Сьюзан холодно на него посмотрела. - Да будет .

У нас тут творятся довольно странные вещи. Я хотел спросить… - Черт тебя дери, Джабба! - воскликнула Мидж.

 Премного благодарен, приятель! - крикнул тот ему вслед.  - Увидишь Меган, передавай от меня привет! - Но Беккер уже исчез. Двуцветный вздохнул и поплелся к танцующим.

Выскочив из кабинета, он повернул налево по главному коридору здания Нуматек. Сотрудники почтительно кланялись, когда он проходил мимо. Нуматака хорошо понимал, что эти поклоны вовсе не свидетельствует об их любви к нему, они - всего лишь знак вежливости, которую японские служащие проявляют по отношению даже к самым ненавистным начальникам. Нуматака проследовал прямо на коммутатор компании. Все звонки принимались единственным оператором на двенадцатиканальный терминал Коренсо-2000.

 Но… но это невозможно! - У немца перехватило дыхание.  - Я там. У него случился инфаркт.

 Неплохо, но есть одно. Он не пользовался своими обычными почтовыми ящиками - ни домашним, ни служебными. Он бывал в Университете Досися и использовал их главный компьютер. Очевидно, там у него был адрес, который он сумел утаить. Это хорошо защищенный почтовый ящик, и мне лишь случайно удалось на него наткнуться.

 Вздор! - крикнул Хейл.  - Лифт подключен к энергоснабжению главного здания. Я видел схему. - Да мы уже пробовали, - задыхаясь, сказала Сьюзан, пытаясь хоть чем-то помочь шефу.  - Он обесточен.

 Скажи, что ты ушел с поста декана. Дэвид кивнул. - В следующем семестре я возвращаюсь в аудиторию.

Возможно ли .

    The term Sensory Integration was developed during the late 60s by an American professional psychologist and therapist, Jean Ayres.
