Exercise for kids is important.  Exercise for kids with special needs especially so.

My goal is to develop a practice that promotes vigorous exercise for kids on the Autism Spectrum and encourages lifelong habits around exercise.

Children who are diagnosed with autism and are receiving behavioural intervention  with applied behavioural analysis (ABA), speech therapy, and whatever else therapy makes for a long and tiring day.  The last thing a parent can say is "go play outside and burn off some energy"  That doesn't always work in the world of autism.

I hope that you will visit this site as I post information about the connection between autism and exercise that I learn.
