Physiotherapy and Autism

In practice, physiotherapists may use a wide range of techniques and strategies to help an individual with autism get the most out of his or her movement.

For example, they may work with on basic movement skills, such as sitting, standing and playing. They may also work on more complex skills such as kicking, throwing and catching.
