  • a The correlation is graded as 0–.25=little, .26–.49=low, .50–.69=moderate, .70–.89=high, and .90–1=very high (Domholdt E. Statistical analysis of relationships: the basics. In: Physical Therapy Research: Principles and Applications. Philadelphia, PA: Saunders; 2000). BMI=body mass index, PACER=Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run, MVPA%=daily average percentage of time spent in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, ASD=autism spectrum disorders, TD=typically developing. Level of significance: * P<.05, ** P <.01.

  • b r could not be calculated because push-up is a constant variable in TD group participants (all scored 40 s).
