Programs Designed for Your Child
Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorders face immense hurdles when participating in typical sports and activities. AFC’s programs are sensory-friendly and designed with the expertise of professional therapists. They are created to support your child’s fine and gross motor skills, social interactions, and sports skills. Most programs are several weeks long to create a routine and encourage meaningful participation.
Our most popular programs include:
- Playing on the Spectrum: gym and sports recreation
- Family Swim
- Swimming lessons
- Running on the Spectrum
- Music on the Spectrum
It’s important for families to find activities they can enjoy together. Many of our programs encourage the whole family to join in, like Family Swim and Running on the Spectrum. AFC’s Playing on the Spectrum even features a concurrent siblings program to engage brothers and sisters. This way, the family can remain a unit during weekend fun. It also provides parents the opportunity to connect with other parents and create a supportive community.
