Recreation & Leisure Activities for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Many students, from preschoolers through adults, play or find activities to occupy themselves with little help from the adults in charge.  Our students with Autism Spectrum Disorders may need help where others don't. 

Rec/leisure activities can include anything from participating in sports to collecting baseball cards.  Children with ASD may need extra help learning skills so they can participate in activities other students master more easily.  They may need help developing interest in what others are interested in.  Or, they may benefit from getting support to develop their own unique interests and pasttimes.  

It's important for each individual to have a selection of enjoyable, appropriate activities to choose from so that "down time" is good time.  This department will explore some of the issues involved.

Here's what our members are saying .....

I use information from Autism Family Online in my practice.  I often tell parents about your website because I know they’ll find reliable information that will give them practical suggestions for helping their children.

Howard Elandt, Psychologist


Your website has been a huge help for me.  My students have very different needs and I have downloaded great pictures to use with them.  The articles have helped me deal with challenging behaviors.

Kim Renshaw, SLP


Autism Family Online helped me so much. As a parent, it empowers me to find information that I can really use.  I printed some choice board pictures and then used them right away.  My son loved them.
