Great Selection of Sports--to Benefit Children With Autism

There are many sports that can help children with autism.
As a matter of fact, there is a great selection, to get
your child interested, for him or her to create a new
experience, and fun. I have learned, there is no special
one-of-a-kind sport for your child to enjoy. Introduce
your child to various sports that you think your child
might have an interest in, or the sport your child talks
about having an interest in, and would like to try it.

It is imperative to remember, each child who has autism has
various communication skills, and various coordination and
motor skills. Know the strengths and weaknesses of your
child before you introduce him or her to certain sports.
However, there are some children, whose weaknesses, become
stronger with certain sports and they develop better motor,
and coordination skills. Never force or push your child
into a sport that is not going to be helpful for their
well-being.

Some of the selections of sports are:

* Swimming--this sport is relaxing, it can be fun, by
throwing a ball back and forth, floating and coordination
of using strokes to strengthen, legs and arms.

* Hiking--this is a great sport to get fresh air, see the
beauty of nature, flowers, birds, bugs, rocks, and it is
peaceful. It requires very little communication, if your
child chooses not to talk or wants to be less talkative. It
is another sport that is less stressful.

* Bike riding--this sport can be introduced, when your
child is young. You might want to start out with training
wheels or a bicycle built for two (tandem bicycle), that
would help your child feel more comfortable. Bike riding
is a great way to exercise, strengthen muscles, obtain
balance and coordination. It can be a sport for the whole
family to enjoy.

These are a few of the great selections of sports your
child can be part of . The various kinds of sports, depend
on where you live, the climate, the season, and what your
child is capable of doing.

Having your child participate in sports, builds, their
self-esteem, teaches team work, better communication,
better motor skills, coordination, discipline, and brings
the family together as a unit.

Try to introduce your child to various sports at all levels
of their age. If your child gets frustrated with noise,
crowds, or has a difficult time understanding how to play
some of the sports, start out simple, for example,
something like hiking, or just going to a relaxing garden,
where there are flowers and little stress.

You as parent(s), caregiver(s), know your child, but never
give up, because children with autism have many abilities
to enjoy, and take part in many activities of sports. Be
creative, and encourage your child. It will be a joyful
experience.
