Many children with autism have delayed or impaired motor skills. Physical therapy can help a child improve the way they move through their environment, and play and interact with others. Physical therapy exercises and activities can focus on many areas, including:
Improving coordination and balance
Learning new motor skills
Gaining muscle control
Increasing fitness and stamina
Developing imitation skills
Physical therapy can have many positive effects. Helping children gain physical strength and skills can also empower them to play and socialize with other children more confidently and navigate daily life more easily.
