Touch-Based Interventions and Autism

Touch-based interventions are any treatments and therapies which use touch as an intervention technique or which are designed to help someone deal with their tactile sensitivity.

Touch-based interventions include deep pressure interventions including brushing, the hug machine, and weighted items such as weighted blankets and weighted vests.

They also include some manipulation-based interventions such as massage therapy.
