The prevalence of children with autism spectrum disorder in Indonesia is currently predicted to continue to increase, while the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder needs to be done early to get optimal results in overcoming some of the problems they experience. However, the fact is that currently many parents are experiencing economic limitations and skills in providing appropriate treatment for their children. In overcoming these problems, a form of intervention is needed that can be carried out by parents without large costs, without special skills that must be possessed, and easily accessible to parents, especially in Indonesia. One of the interventions that can be used is physical activity interventions. The purpose of this study is to summarize the description of physical activity interventions applied to children with autism spectrum disorder in Indonesian research. This research was conducted using a literature review research method, using two research articles that had previously existed in Indonesia, by using a literature review research method on two articles that related with the topics with a total of 12 participants. It was found that the physical activity intervention that can be modified according to the child’s condition and using the ball assisting media when playing, namely the modified soccer intervention and modified basketball which was carried out for six intervention sessions for autism spectrum disorder children, could improve the ability of social interaction in children with autism spectrum disorder in Indonesia.
