Abstract

Occupational therapists can rely on typically developing (TD) siblings’ expertise in treatment interventions. Play between TD siblings and siblings with autism spectrum disorder is typically sensorimotor play, to further educate the family and foster relationships between siblings. Photovoice was found to be a suitable method for eliciting the narrative of children ages 9–11 yr.
