Motor challenges are commonly reported in children with autism spectrum disorder and have been linked to challenges with daily living skills (DLS). However, greater specificity is needed to understand which DLS are most associated with motor challenges. This work shows that motor challenges in children are most highly associated with DLS challenges in the domains of dressing, bathing, cleaning, and meal preparation. OTs can use this to inform clinical intervention.
