! Physiotherapy (also known as physical therapy) is based on the idea that human movement is central to the health and well-being of individuals.
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.
We are currently reviewing the literature on the use of physiotherapy for people with autism.
Please note that because it includes such a wide range of treatments it is not possible to provide a ranking for physiotherapy as a whole. More information.
