About This Activity

This program is for individuals on the autism spectrum, ages 11 to 25, and their parents. The class presents a rare opportunity for parents to learn how to work more effectively with their special needs children while both benefit from exercising.

Learn how to help your child:
- Develop social skills in a group setting
- Be successful in public while exercising together
- Follow individual and group directions
- Engage in gross motor skill activities
- Increase imitation skills

At the same time, you both can:
- Learn about self-control
- Develop more self-confidence
- Condition the body
