Abstract

Throughout this chapter evidence will be presented illustrating the pervasive nature of sensory processing and movement control to ‘higher-level’ outcomes such as social and cognitive skills. Viewed from a developmental perspective, questions will be posed regarding the isolated and artificial segregation of ‘higher-level’ symptomatology to characterize ASD, and the repeated resistance to the inclusion of such secondary or ‘associated’ sensory and movement skills. This chapter thus aims to further discuss and elucidate the impact and limitation of this arguably restricted view, and further pose, is it time for a new model of ASD?
