Novel approach to autism discovered by study

An experimental study was conducted across Kent in UK in the schools for children with special needs. The study engaged trained performers in the interactive series of three sensory environments like ‘the arctic’, ‘outer space’ and ‘under sea’. Employing puppetry, light, sound and physical action they aimed at promoting socialization and communication by playful engagement creatively. Parents found the severity of autism symptoms decreasing significantly. These practical methods might be what is needed today for children world over suffering from autism. The study was undertaken by psychologists from University’s Tizard Centre and School of Psychology and was headed by Prof. Nicola Shaughnessy.
