Autism sports activities make our days fun, provide kids with exercise, growth, social interaction, accomplishment and a break from screen time.
Special needs recreation programs with adaptive sports allow kids with special needs to join in physical activity, learn new social skills, and discover leisure activities that they can enjoy every day.
Other benefits of recreation for kids with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities include these important life skills:
- healthy living skills
- new skills (physical, emotional)
- personal growth
- team building/team sports
- hand-eye coordination
- social interaction
- greater independence
Check out some tried and true autism recreation activities and maybe a new, favorite program waiting to be discovered!
Great Benefits of Recreational Therapies
Joining in new activities are great opportunities to produce feelings of enjoyment, increase motivation and boost mental health.
Kids have a variety of activities they can choose from including summer and winter activities. Summer outings include day programs, summer camps and theme parks.
Frosty winter fun can be found at recreation centers, school programs, community programs and art therapy groups.
