Abstract

The previous chapters have begun to outline the power of utilizing kinematic analysis as a route to noninvasively profile levels of neurophysiological control, while illustrating the potential role of the “movement perspective” in autism. Specifically, these chapters intimate the cascading effects of this level of control on higher-level functions, such as cognition and social skills. This chapter aims to further discuss and elucidate what underpins our conceptualization of social skills—a key area of inquiry in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research—and the potential role of sensory-motor control.
