Objective : This study was to investigate effects of sensory integration intervention with oral activity on breathing and oral diadochokinetic movement of child with developmental disability. Methods : A subject of this study was 6years and 7month old boy, living in G city which was diagnosed as developmental disability. The study performed from November, 2012 to February, 2013. Research design used in this study is AB design for single-subject research. The experimental period was divided into two phase: 3 sessions for baseline phase (A), 16 sessions for treatment phase (B). There was sensory integration therapy on the baseline phase, and sensory integration intervention with oral activity was conducted on the treatment phase. Breathing measured a Spirometer, oral diadochokinetic movement was measured by measuring the time secondly when repeating "phathakha" ten times. Results : In comparison with the baseline phase, the child's breathing and diadochokinetic movement increased during the treatment phase. Conclusion : Sensory integration intervention with oral activity brought positive results to child's breathing and oral diadochokinetic movement.
