Gait and Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Gait and autism spectrum disorder (ASD):
“ … overall findings of the studies conducted in the area are inconclusive … however, some results suggest an emerging pattern. The current perspective on gait patterns in children with ASD is that there are a number of deviations present in terms of temporospatial, kinematic, and kinetic parameters and that gait, along with other movement pattern changes, may be used to allow for earlier diagnosis of ASD. There is, however, some consensus regarding the involvement of the cerebellum and basal ganglia in children with ASD and the relationship with observed motor deficits. ” - Kindregan et al
