The video era begins…
This is a “typical” session with one of my athletes with autism. We’ve been working hard at developing basic pre-requisite skills including bending, jumping, and extending the arms. You’ll notice some off-task behavior, which is an opportunity to incorporate some redirection, prompting, and behavior-specific praise into the situation. This sequence of activities can take days, or weeks, or years to master independently for a particular athlete.
When the foundations of movement begin to flourish, we can get into some really fun activities. These are all movement patterns that have great generalization potential to life skills. More videos to come!
