Autistic children often display abnormal postures, head tilts, and other spatial management dysfunctions. Methods were introduced to measure spatial orientation in tasks in a group of fourteen autistic children in Montreal, Canada. Ambient lenses were found to improve posture, correct head tilts, and improve ball batching abilities. A model of spatial orientation is described and recommendations are made to incorporate ambient lenses in treatment programs.
