Deformable musical surfaces for children with autism

Compared to other populations, individuals with autism tend to have more challenges with processing sensory input as well as motor coordination. In general, children with autism exhibit numerous sensorimotor impairments and may have poor motor control defaulting their ability to appropriately redirect their movements to respond to sensory stimuli. For example, when children with autism...
