Developing a protocol for using the Test of Gross Motor Development (TGMD-3) with children with autism spectrum disorder

Abstract: (Draft)

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are among the fastest growing population of pervasive developmental disorders. These children have also demonstrated deficits in gross motor performance. However, what is lacking in research is the clear understanding of what modifications are best when providing the Test of Gross Motor Development, 3rd Ed. (TGMD-3). This study seeks to create a set of modifications to the administrative protocol.
