This book is packed with helpful advice and inspiring case studies that show the program’s proven results, as well as guidelines on adapting the exercises for different ages and abilities both at home and in the classroom. The boost to confidence, relationships, and general wellbeing will be transformative for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Written by David Geslak, this popular program contains a visual and structured philosophy to get minds and bodies active and teach lifelong fitness.
Using the same evidence-based strategies that have proven successful in the classroom and home, Exercise Buddy can make it possible for your children to make the exercise connection.
Research has shown that exercise can improve:
Exercise is a powerful tool that should be included in any autism treatment plan. Fortunately, our Exercise Buddy app is an easy, engaging way to help get your kids moving. The app includes social narratives, exercise videos, visual support, and the ability to track progress over time. Therefore, you can see the exercise benefits for autism firsthand.
While exercise has been proven to benefit autistic children and adults, creating the structure needed for success takes time that many parents don’t have. The Visual Exercise System engages your child, supports communication, and provides the structure necessary to be successful.

IDEA law supports participation in school-based physical education (PE), which is a good first step. However, many students with disabilities do not receive appropriate PE services. If PE is not part of your IEP, or your children don’t have the resources to be included and successful, we can provide you with resources to help.
