The Exercise Connection: Effective Programming for Individuals with Autism

Exercise programs are one of the most under-utilized treatments for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders. David will educate you on the importance of structure, visual, tactile and sensory supports and how to set up an individual and group exercise program. The exercises you will learn have been implemented in homes, schools and autism centers across the world. Be ready to move, learn and leave with exercises that you can do with your child or the children you work with tomorrow!
