Children who interacted in especially designed ‘sensory environments’ saw their autism symptoms greatly improve.
Children with autism who take part in drama and performance activities may be able to improve their communication and interpersonal skills, a study has found.
As part of the research project, children aged between seven and 12 years old interacted with themed ‘sensory environments’ called Under the Sea, Outer Space, Forest, Under the City, and the Arctic.
Each environment was designed to accommodate 22 children, who were were encouraged to respond to triggers created using lighting, sound, physical action, and puppetry.
