Up to 90 percent of individuals on the autism spectrum experience differences in the way they take in and understand sensory information (i.e., sight, hearing, touch). Despite how common these differences are, we are still working to understand how the brain’s sensory processing relates to social and communication skill in individuals on the autism spectrum.
This session will highlight a five-year project focused on understanding how the brain integrates information coming in from multiple senses, and whether we can train multisensory integration abilities in children on the autism spectrum.
