Promoting Physical Activity for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Barriers, Benefits, and Strategies for Success
Menear, Kristi S.; Neumeier, William H.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v86 n3 p43-48 2015
Many students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) fall short of the recommended physical activity levels and experience challenges in physical activity and physical education settings. This article reviews factors that can improve the physical activity statistics of students with ASD, outlines the researched benefits of physical activity for students with ASD, and summarizes previously published strategies for success in physical education. It serves as a tool for teachers who wish to promote best practices and advocate for quality movement programs for these students.
