Abstract

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition with varying symptomatology that affects individuals throughout their lives. This paper explores the intersections of sociology, pedagogy interventions, and occupational therapy in addressing the needs of individuals with ASD. Sociological perspectives offer insights into social determinants of health, the construction of disability, and family dynamics, informing holistic interventions.Pedagogical strategies are focused on individualized approaches, multi-sensory techniques and social skills development to create inclusive learning environments. Occupational therapy interventions focus on functional skills development, promoting independence, and enhancing participation in daily activities.

Collaborative efforts between professionals, educators, families, and individuals with ASD are essential for implementing effective interventions and promoting social inclusion. Future research directions include longitudinal studies, technology integration, and culturally responsive practices to optimize outcomes. By integrating sociological, pedagogical, and occupational therapy approaches, professionals can allow people with ASD to reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
