About

To examine the effects of posture, hand functions and sensory processing skills on nutrition in children with autism spectrum disorder. The study aims to include 40 children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), directed from the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Istanbul University, along with their parents/caregivers, and 40 healthy children along with their parents/caregivers.

Full description

Parents/caregivers of children diagnosed with ASD will be assessed using a demographic information form; sensory processing (Dunn Sensory Profile); nutrition (Screening Tool for Eating Problems (STEP), Brief Autism Mealtime Behavior Inventory (BAMBI)); quality of life (Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL 4.0)); children will undergo assessments for balance (Pediatric Berg Balance Scale); head posture (Craniovertebral angle method), hand functions (Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test); grip strength (Jamar Hand Dynamometer); and parents' evaluations for depression, anxiety, and stress levels (Beck Depression Inventory, Beck Anxiety Inventory, Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory). The assessment duration, including explanations and questionnaires, will take approximately 1 hour.

Study group
Description:
The inclusion of 40 children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their parents/caregivers is planned. Parents/caregivers of children diagnosed with ASD will undergo assessments including a demographic information form; sensory processing (Dunn Sensory Profile); nutrition (Screening Tool for Eating Problems (STEP), Brief Autism Mealtime Behavior Inventory (BAMBI)); quality of life (Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL 4.0)); assessments for children, including balance (Pediatric Berg Balance Scale); head posture (Craniovertebral angle method), hand functions (Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test); grip strength (Jamar Hand Dynamometer); and evaluations for parents, including depression, anxiety, and stress levels (Beck Depression Inventory, Beck Anxiety Inventory, Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory).
Control group
Description:
The inclusion of 40 typically developing children and their parents/caregivers is planned. Parents/caregivers of typically developing children will undergo assessments including a demographic information form; sensory processing (Dunn Sensory Profile); nutrition (Screening Tool for Eating Problems (STEP), Brief Autism Mealtime Behavior Inventory (BAMBI)); quality of life (Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL 4.0)); assessments for children, including balance (Pediatric Berg Balance Scale); head posture (Craniovertebral angle method), hand functions (Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test); grip strength (Jamar Hand Dynamometer); and evaluations for parents, including depression, anxiety, and stress levels (Beck Depression Inventory, Beck Anxiety Inventory, Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory).
