What is the relationship of balance, coordination, language and quality of life to the symptoms of autism?
Two Northern Illinois University faculty members in the Allied Health and Communicative Disorders division are hoping to answer that question and others in a new research study they are conducting, and they are seeking children with autism to help them.
NIU Asst. Prof. Allison Gladfelter, a speech/language pathologist, and Asst. Prof. Christina Odeh, a physical therapist, are recruiting speaking children between the ages of 3 and 12 with autism.
