The Influence Of Physical Exercise On Individuals With Autism : Is Physical Exercise Able To Help Autistic?

Al Awamleh, Aida; Alexander Woll, Alexander

The purpose of this study is to provide some background information on autism and how physical activity may be helping individuals with autism. Increasing rates of autism have been noted: Many researchers are involved in finding treatment methods that can help autistic children. Some studies have provided evidence that physical exercise and playing organized sport has been shown to be a beneficial intervention for the treatment of autistic individuals. The development of both motor and social skills has been seen to improve from physical exercise, which presents a challenge to individuals with autism.
