Autism Ontario Peel ACTTs: Peel Autism Community Together through Sports
Using the recreation model developed by the Special Olympics, Peel ACTTs will feature the ACTIVE START - BEGINNER program for individuals with ASD.
ACTIVE START (from 6-7pm) is a beginner program for individuals with ASD with increased difficulties and who generally need TA support at school. Participants will work on following group instruction, develop basic movement skills and follow a routine with visual supports. The goal is for the participant to have the physical skills and fitness ability to participate in physical activities and to have fun!
