In this paper we learn about neuroplastic rehabilitation and how this new science might be used to make sensory stimulation more accessible, relevant and meaningful for people with autism. Neuroplasticity is an incredibly complex process but a simplistic view is the idea that the brain changes itself in response to the level and type of sensory stimulation it processes. Educators who work with people with sensory issues therefore need to be much more alert to the interface between sensory stimulation and brain development. This paper introduces the basic principles of neuroplastic rehabilitation and investigates how these principles might be used to better inform practice when working with people with autism.
