Feet and autism.

There are a number of reasons a child with Autism may walk on their toes. These include sensory difficulties. A child with Autism could experience anxiety or discomfort feeling certain areas of their feet touching the ground.


Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are often described as “uncoordinated” or “clumsy” and many have clear motor control impairments. Early intervention to address motor deficits may improve physical skills and the difficulties with social functioning that are the hallmark of the disorder.


If you have a child who is “clumsy” or “uncoordinated”, call us today and book them in.
