    About This Project

    Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Developmental Disabilities (DD) have a higher risk of being obese, more sedentary, and participate in less physical activity than typically developing (TD) peers. We are seeking to develop modifications to physical activity games for TD youth that are appropriate for kids with ASD. These will be in the form of social stories and videos that are simple for staff to use and for kids with ASD to understand.
