Autism affects many children starting at a very young age. Each individual is impacted differently, and are categorized as being on a spectrum. One thing that many people on the autism spectrum have in common is lack of sensory awareness, which causes sensory issues in one or more senses. Individuals with autism can suffer from different kinds of sensory issues including auditory, visual, gustatory, olfactory, tactile, vestibular, and proprioception. The most common issues among this population pertain to the tactile, vestibular, and proprioception senses. This literature review and critical analysis examines current research regarding the effectiveness of sensory integration techniques and interventions in the classroom for children on the autism spectrum concerning tactile, vestibular, and proprioception sensory issues.
