HOW THE PHYSICAL THERAPY HELP THE CHILDREN SUFFERING FROM AUTISM?

WHY WOULD A PERSON WITH AUTISM NEED TO SEE A PHYSICAL  THERAPIST?

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder. This means that most people on the autism spectrum have delays, differences or disorder in many areas including gross & fine motor skills.

Children on the spectrum may have low muscle tone, or have a tough time with co-ordination & sports. These issues can interfere with basic day- to-day functioning & they are almost certain to interfere with social & physical development. 

Children with autism would rarely be termed physically disabled (though there are some autistic children with very low muscle tone, which may make it difficult to sit or walk for long periods) most children with autism do, however have physical imitations.
