Video game research of UW-Madison’s Travers shows promise for autism

Brittany Travers, a faculty member with the Department of Kinesiology's occupational therapy program, is conducting groundbreaking research at UW-Madison's Waisman Center. Travers is studying children with autism spectrum disorder by using a Wii to learn more about how helping them improve their motor skills may have a positive impact on their symptoms.​ It was during her time in graduate school that Travers first began to notice slight differences in the way people with ASD moved compared to those not on the spectrum.
