Abstract

Objective : The purpose of the study was to investigate The effects of the sensory integration intervention focused on combined both individual therapy and group therapy for sensory integration ability and occupational performance abilities in children with somatodyspraxia. Methods : Once in a total of 12 weeks, baseline period of four sessions and twenty-four session intervention period, research process had combined individual therapy and group therapy for sensory integration therapy. The Design is ABA design of single-subject research design. For a comparison of each-side of the operation performance change in therapy for children, through the assessment Baseline at four sessions and reassessment at two sessions after intervention, the Occupational performance ability change was measured. During intervention period, Process changed the Sensory Integration ability was measured through the Goal Attainment Scale (GAS). Results : The Sensory Integration Ability combined Individual therapy and Group therapy have effect about improvement of the Sensory Integration ability and the Occupational performance ability for children with Somatodyspraxia. Conclusion : Henceforth, subject will undergo systematized experimental design, and when dependent variable such as Sensory Integration ability and the Occupational performance was measured, effect-measuring study needs through using reliable tools.
