Healthy Weight Management for Children with Autism

Behavioral barriers for Children with Autism

Behavioral barriers

One of the prescriptions for health that officials have emphasized in recent years is the need for children to get plenty of exercise. Medical professionals recommend that children engage in at least 60 minutes of activity per day. The problem for children with autism is that many of the activities officials and caregivers often use to help children stay activity revolve around group activities. All children with autism experience symptoms differently, but many of them have trouble with social interaction skills. Without addressing the specific needs associated with this challenge, children with autism will be more likely to remain on the sideline instead of getting on the field.
