In brief: Too vague
Wish i could give a useful answer, but your question is too vague to permit a specific answer. Those with autism sometimes do have physical problems from toe walking through GI problems.
Generally, the problems are treated the same way they would be if the child did not have autism--but sometimes the autism complicates the treatment.

In brief: Wellness is key ..
As dr. Elliot said the question is too broad to answer specifically; however, asking if physical problems are involved with the behaviors we see in asd, then we could answer with a resounding yes.
A thorough integrative assessment of a person with asd's health is essential so that medical problems do not interfere with learning, mood and development - gi, immune and biochemistry are top priority.
