Sensorimotor assessment aims at evaluating sensorial and motor capabilities of children who are likely to present a pervasive developmental disorder, such as autism. It relies on playful activities which are proposed by a psychomotrician expert to the child, with the intent of observing how the latter responds to various physical and cognitive stimuli. Each session is recorded so that the psychomotrician can use the video as a support for reviewing in-session impressions and drawing final

However, the systematic inspection of these data by clinical professionals would be timeconsuming and impracticable. In order to make these analyses feasible, we discuss a computer vision approach to prospect behavior information from the available visual data acquired throughout assessment sessions.
