- increased postural sway in children with ASD
- greater frequency and intensity of restricted, repetitive behaviors were present in the children with ASD
- a positive correlation between postural sway area and presence of restricted, repetitive behaviors
- postural sway area for about half of the ASD subjects scored comparable to TD controls, but the other half scored > 2 SD worse
- motor impaired children were younger and had more repetitive behaviors
