For Some Children With Autism, Dance Is a Form of Expression
Here in the United States, about one in 59 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A dance study at the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences is focused on developing social communication skills, motor skills and behavior in children with autism.
