Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the most prevalent Neurodevelopmental condition of unknown etiology. The integration of sensory difficulties with ASD affects the day to day routine activities and shows much dependence on parents or caretakers of ASD children and adolescents. The most significant oral sensory challenge is the imperfect development of speech followed by atypical feeding behavior. Currently, speech therapy is the central therapy used for speech errors, followed by Oral placement therapy, Nonspeech oral motor therapy, and audio digital therapies. However, all oral therapies have advantages and limitations, due amount of time required and nature of the disorder. The present review evaluated the current status of oral therapies and recommended prosthodontic based guidelines based upon the oral sensory-motor pattern associated with ASD subjects.
