Exercise and active play ideas for autistic children

Exercise and active play can be really beneficial for autistic children and young people. As well as building fine motor skills, coordination, movement and strength, the suitable activities help our children regulate their nervous and sensory systems, decreasing anxiety and improving their ability to focus and learn.
This library (produced by physiotherapist Stephanie Wheen and occupational therapist Cath Williams) has lots of ideas, exercises, activities and games to help our children in their development.
