A study published in the journal Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders examines toddlers and preschoolers with autism who have better motor skills.
The children who demonstrated better motor skills are more adept at socializing and communicating. The researchers tested 233 children ages 14 to 49 months diagnosed with autism. The study also finds that children who tested higher for motor skills were also better at "daily living skills," such as talking, playing, walking, and requesting for things.
