[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Researchers have observed that children with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, can experience sensorimotor impairments before they show signs of social and communication symptoms. Poor motor skills in individuals with ASD may affect many tasks such as playing with toys, handwriting, picking up a glass of water, and zipping up a coat, etc. which can certainly influence independence throughout one’s lifetime. Researchers took a closer look at sensory feedback and autism and how it is associated with age and motor behaviors.
