Basing treatment intervention and practice on the evidence is essential as therapists. This space on The OT Toolbox Community is an area for community members to share and access evidence-based practice resources. Have a resource to share? Add it here. Imagine if all of us added articles and research backed by science. This space would become a valuable tool for promoting and enhancing the profession of Occupational Therapy!

Effectiveness of Therapy Ball Chairs on Classroom Participation in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
This study looks at the use of ball chairs in the classroom. The following conclusion was drawn: "the results illuminate the complex nature of children with ASD, of behavior and learning, and of occupation and the importance of using sophisticated clinical reasoning skills when making recommendations for interventions in the classroom for children with ASD. Additional research that addresses the relationship of sensory processing patterns and improved classroom participation is indicated before therapy ball chairs should be used as an evidence-based intervention."
