Asperger syndrome (AS), a form of autism spectrum disorder, is a fairly common condition among children and youth. It is estimated that as many as 48 per 10,000 children have this disorder. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR), children with AS are characterized by impairment in social interaction, occupation, or other functions. They also demonstrate repetitive and restricted stereotyped patterns of behavior, activities, and interests. Although AS is foremost a social disorder, sensorimotor impairments are widely reported in this group of children. Walking is amongst the most important and fundamental motor skills that a child needs to acquire during the first few years of life. It has been reported that although children and adults with autism can walk independently, they demonstrate atypical gait characteristics such as decreased knee flexion in early stance.
