August 24, 2020

Andrew Pitchford, assistant professor in kinesiology, received $25,000 from the Healthy Weight Research Network for his research on interrelationships between balance, physical activity, weight, and motor skill competency in children 5-10 years old with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Better understanding these relationships will help determine if traditional motor development and physical activity intervention approaches are applicable to children with ASD.
