Adding sensory integration to autism assessments may yield more individualized treatment
People with autism are often portrayed in popular media as experiencing difficulty processing highly stimulating or overly loud environments.

New research shows that adding assessments focused on sensory integration into the regular autism assessment process can yield new information for patients and their care teams to help guide therapeutic activities.
