Cover Story (view full-size image): Difficulties in integrating multisensory inputs in childhood may translate in a less efficient postural control, with important implications for the ability to adapt and to self-manage in the face of social, physical, and emotional challenges. According to the “neurodevelopmental gradient hypothesis”, those who suffer from a neurodevelopmental disorder may present with different degrees of impairments in a number of individual assets, depending on the severity of the condition. This article suggests that, in terms of postural control, autism is the most severely impaired neurodevelopmental condition, followed by attention-deficit hyperactive disorder and Tourette syndrome, in line with predictions from the gradient hypothesis. Poor postural control may therefore be a useful biomarker for risk assessment during neurodevelopment. View this paper.
