Hartshorn, Kristin; Olds, Loren; Field, Tiffany; Delage, Jessie; Cullen, Christy; Escalona, Angelica
Early Child Development and Care, v166 p1-5 Feb 2001
Thirty-eight children with autism were given movement therapy in small groups led by a trained movement therapist. After two months of biweekly sessions, the children spent less time wandering, more time showing on-task behavior, less time showing negative responses to being touched, and less time resisting the teacher than those in the control group.
