Abstract :
Introduction; This study has shown the impact of Autism on some influensive measures of postural control [the reaction time (simple and choice) and balance (dynamic and static)] between Autistic and normal children. Material and methods; The research method is causal_ comparative. In order to select a sample of autistic children, 15 autistic children were chosen in a health center in Hamadan, and in order to select a sample of normal children, 100 children in five Geographical zones in Hamden (North, South, East, West and Downtown ) were randomly chosen and participated in this research project. Observations; Obtained data were analyzed by Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistical methods and Uman Whitney test. The results showed that there was a significant difference in static and dynamic balance between Autistic and normal children. Also, there was a significant difference in simple and choice reaction time between Autistic and normal children. Results; It seems that the inability of autistic children in poor communication and failure in central nervous system resulted in significant differences in time variables, reaction time and balance.
Keywords :
