Behaviour Plans and Exercise
I am curious. How many BCBAs incorporate exercise into the behaviour plan for their clients?
I am hoping to open a dialogue with Behaviour Consultants about how exercise can be used as a COMPLEMENTARY tool to behaviour interventions.
I am of the belief that programmed exercise sessions can be a valuable tool to specific behaviour interventions (sleep issues/feeding issues/table work) and as a tool to develop self-regulation skills, and specific athletic skills that may improve quality of life for an individual with autism.
