Gross Motor Skills, Postural Stability, and Autism
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Research indicates that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) frequently exhibit deficits in gross motor skills and postural stability. Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders published research examining the relationship between gross motor skills, postural stability, and autism.
The participants included 11 children with ASD and 11 children without ASD ages 5-12 years old. Each child was evaluated with the Test of Gross Motor Development-3 (TGMD-3) and postural sway measurements on a force plate during quiet standing on a solid and compliant surface.
