Evaluating and Treating Balance Impairments in Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

This session will examine the neurological evidence for balance and motor impairments in children with autism. Evidence from the literature will be discussed as a platform in choosing evaluation tools and treatment strategies to address balance and motor impairments to improve function in the school environment.

Participants will be able to:

1.Compare the neurological differences between children with autism and those with typical development

2. Apply the evidence for gross motor dysfunction to the clinical presentation of children with autism.

3.Identify interventions for children with autism based on the science and evidence.
