EXERCISE is an evidence-based practice and the #1 rated treatment for autism
1 in 68 individuals are diagnosed with autism, and their families will leave no stone unturned to help them. A multitude of therapies exist that are not backed by science. Exercise has been proven to work, and in a big way.
Exercise for those with autism doesn’t just increase fitness levels; research shows that it is a gateway to increasing focus, reducing stereotypical behaviors, improving social skills and language development.
"Our National Survey of Autism Treatment Effectiveness, based on over 700 autism families, found that exercise was the number 1 rated treatment overall, with a rating of 4.2/5, substantially higher than the 2nd highest rated treatment with a 3.8/5." - James B. Adams, PH.D. - Arizona State University
