Grandview Kids Research Associate, Dr. Meghann Lloyd, is recruiting 3-5 year old children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for a motor skill intervention study in Oshawa.
All children will receive 12 weeks of intervention for 2 hours/week. The motor skill intervention is an instructional play-based program that will take place at the UOIT Physical Activity and Motor Behaviour lab and will be run by highly trained personnel as well as graduate and undergraduate Kinesiology students at UOIT. Children will be randomly assigned to either Group 1, which receives the intervention first, or Group 2, which receives the intervention second. Children will participate in 3 assessments and playdates in addition to the intervention sessions. We aim to see if motor skills, social skills and behavioural skills improve after the intervention.
