Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this investigation was to examine the body of literature on modeling interventions to improve physical activity skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Methods: A systematic review was implemented to identify and further examine studies that met inclusion criteria. Searches were conducted through four electronic databases within the Humboldt State University Library and included: SPORTDiscus, PubMed/Medline, ERIC, and PsychINFO.A following search was conducted of an individual search of one major journal focused on disseminating research in adapted physical education (i.e., Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly [APAQ]) and one major journal focused on disseminating research for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (i.e., Research in Autism Spectrum Disorder).Results: A total of 97 articles were selected for abstract appraisal which resulted in a total of 3 articles that met inclusion criteria. This review collectively demonstrates the evidence modeling interventions can have on improving physical activity skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
