Physical Therapy

Children with autism, apart from the core difficulties in social behavior and interaction, communication skills and stereotypical behavior, also face problems with motor planning, posture and coordination. But in the presence of gross behavioral and sensory manifestations the motor symptoms are often overlooked. Slowly as the understanding of autism is growing, various studies have identified motor and physical impairment in children with autism.

Physical Therapy is thus, the detection and the corrective measures taken for these physical complaints before they become permanent.
