CARVALHO, Mírian Carla Lima  and  RESENDE, Elle Beethoven. Psychomotor performance in people with autism spectrum disorder: Systematic review. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2023, vol.40, n.121, pp.94-102. ISSN 0103-8486.

The knowledge of the theoretical psychomotrician is based on ontogenesis, which can be represented as a "domino effect", one piece is key to the other, one skill supports the other, as seen in Luria's perspective. The work of the psychomotrician with Autism Spectrum Disorder involves the evaluation of developmental areas, considering that it is a neurodevelopmental disorder. Thus, there are several instruments and approaches that support the performance of the psychomotor driver, in this sense, the question is: What are the instruments used in psychomotor assessment practice with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder? Therefore, the main objective of this article was to investigate the instruments and the psychomotor performance of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the literature. The research is characterized as a systematic review and in a quantitative and qualitative format. The steps for collecting information were followed: (1) screening and search; (2) article selection; (3) full reading of the articles, for analysis of results and discussion. Results found in the stage screening and search (1): 42 articles were flagged. In the stage selection of articles (2), six articles were selected for full reading and discussion of the results, between the years 2015 and 2020. Therefore, it was observed that the objectives proposed by the study were achieved, however, it was expected to find a diversity of instruments applied, considering that only two were found, which requires further studies with this population, differentiating the instrumentation.
