TouchPoint Blog – 2.6.20 (2.5.20)

Children with autism are slightly more prone to injuries than children in the general population and those with non-ASD-related developmental delays – as found in a recent study published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. Specific factors leading to this higher rate include hyperactivity, anxiety, cognitive delays affecting causal reasoning and sensory issues. If you are a parent of an autistic child, injury prevention begins with identifying the biggest risks so you can successfully reduce the dangers of each one.
