Abstract or Summary
  • Interventions for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) focus on core impairments in social communication skills, yet studies have shown a relationship between social and motor skill deficits in children with ASD. The purpose of this study is to further examine individual levels of gross and fine motor skills in relation to social communication skills of young children with ASD. Using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales – Second Edition (PDMS-2) and specific sections of modules 1 and 2 of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), the relationship between motor skills and social communicative skills are explored. Pearson Correlation coefficients are used to describe the relationship between motor skills and social communicative skills for children with ASD and typically developing children. Results indicate strong negative correlations between fine, gross, and total motor skill scores and ADOS calibrated severity scores. Children with ASD are found to display strong motor skills in relation to strong social communicative skills. In an effort to improve the motor and social communicative skills of young children with ASD, further exploration is warranted.
