Autistic Spectrum Disorder Movement Patterns
Autism has several and possibly connected causes, which are not completely understood. Thus applying effective treatments may be difficult to physicians. Usually, autistic patients exhibit self-stimulatory repetitive behavioral patterns. Based on video recording, movement patterns may be found which may elucidate us about the cause and the best treatment to choose.
