Dental Care and Kids with Autism

Thx to AOTA for sending along this very helpful article:


I frequently have families and teachers ask me how to help students cope with the fine motor and/or sensory difficulties associated with toothbrushing.  However, visiting the dentist is a huge undertaking and many students don't receive the care they need because of their difficulties with the sounds, smells and other aspects of the dentist's office.
