We investigated factors that influenced occupational therapists'
beliefs about and use of sensory-based approaches for children with autism
spectrum disorder (ASD). METHOD: Occupational therapists working with children
with ASD (N = 211 from 16 countries) completed an online survey addressing their
work experience, training, use of sensory-based approaches, and beliefs and
perceptions about the effects of the approaches. Linear regression was used to
determine predictors of use of and beliefs about sensory-based approaches.
RESULTS: Most respondents (98%) used sensory-based approaches for children with
ASD and would recommend the approaches for 57% of the children they treated.
Having a mentor who promoted sensory-based approaches and practicing outside
North America and Australia predicted greater use and perceived effectiveness of
these approaches. Less than 5 yr of occupational therapy experience predicted
less use of the approaches. CONCLUSION: Respondents selectively used
sensory-based approaches for children with ASD and were influenced by country of
residence, clinical experience, and mentorship.
