Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find out the performance of children with ASD belongs to Ahmedabad city by using SSP. It will be useful to understand their behavior with the help of the caregivers of the children. 50 children with ASD were approached on different platforms and incorporated in the study on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria of the study. The sample does not represent the entire population of children with ASD; therefore the study can be done with a larger sample size. Seventy-Eight (78%) children with ASD diagnosed with a definite and probable difference. Eighty-six (86%) children with ASD obtained a combined score of definite difference and probable differences in Tactile Sensitivity and Underresponsive/Seeks Sensation and 64% in Auditory filtering. Typical performance of children with ASD was also seen during the research. Forty (40%) children with ASD showed typical performance in Taste/Smell Sensitivity, 38% in Movement Sensitivity, 42% in Low energy/Weak and 46% in Visual/Auditory sensitivity. From the result of this study, different sensory patterns in children with ASD have been revealed. It can be treated with the SIT and with the help of it the child’s performance can be improved. SIT can positively affect motor skills, socialization, attention, behavior control, reading skills, participation in-game activities, and the achievement of personal goals. This study recognizes the importance of assessing the performance of children from different cultural contexts, particularly in relation to their everyday functioning or occupation.
