The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now estimates that 1 in 68 children will be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in their lifetime, 1 in 42 boys, 1 in 189 girls — more than an 80% increase since 2002. Many professionals are invested in treating the numerous challenges present with children with ASD. OTs must use effective and relevant treatment approaches if they want to remain essential players in the education of children with ASD. One such practice is the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Recent studies demonstrate that many children with ASD can benefit from this approach, which can be readily incorporated with other OT approaches. CBT can have a direct effect on children with ASD as they engage in their daily occupations.
