Children playing

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is typically diagnosed in toddlers.  The disorder is characterized by various behaviors that impair communication and social interactions.  These stereotyped or self-stimulating (SSB) behaviors refer to repetitive and / or restrictive patterns and may include repetitive speech or repetitive motor movements (spinning, rocking, flapping etc.). Because ASD is often diagnosed in young children, it is no surprise that there is an emphasis on ASD therapies for kids. While there is no known cure or course of treatment for ASD. Previous research has indicated that aerobic exercise can remediate some of the symptoms and behaviors associated with the disorder.
