Abstract
 
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of sensory-motor integration training in decreasing stereotypic behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorder.
Methods: This is an A-B follow-up case study. Purposive sampling was used to recruit four male children with autism spectrum disorder that were chosen by non-probability and purposive sampling method. The participants participated in 21 sessions of sensory-motor integration training. Assessment instrument was Gilliam Autism Rating Scale (GARS). Visual inspection charts and Cohen's d effect size were used to analyze the data.
 
Results: The result of visual inspection on stereotypic behaviors and autism symptoms indicates the effectiveness of sensory-motor integration training in improvement of autism symptoms and stereotypic behaviors. The result of Cohen's d effect size showed large effect size of sensory-motor integration training on stereotypic behaviors and autism symptoms. Nonetheless, the effect size of sensory-motor integration training in the follow up stage for one of cases was medium.
 
Conclusion: The results of this research can be used in therapeutic planning and clinical interventions to reduce and treat autism symptoms.
 
Keywords: Sensory-Motor Integration, Stereotypic Behaviors , Autism Spectrum Disorder.
