We use the term 'Technology-Based Motor Sensory Interventions' to describe different forms of assistive and augmentative technology which are used to deliver motor sensory interventions for people on the autism spectrum.
Motor interventions refer to any treatments and therapies which make use of, or which aim to improve, motor functioning i.e. movement of the whole body or parts of the body.
Sensory interventions refer to any treatments and therapies which make use of, or which aim to improve sensitivity to, one or more of the senses.
This glossary is designed to explain some of the jargon and gobbledygook used by some people when they talk about autism or research..
