Article - Autism Friendly Youth Organizations

by: various

Source: Autism Speaks


The purpose of this guide is to better prepare youth-serving organizations to serve youth and families with autism. In this document, autism refers to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which includes individuals diagnosed with Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Not Otherwise Specified, and Asperger’s Disorder. Autism Speaks believes that recreation and leisure activities are particularly important for people with autism. We know that participating in such activities often produces opportunities to practice social skills, physical aptitude and increase motivation while also increasing self-confidence and fuller integration into the community.
The information that follows will be useful for helping integrate youth with autism into your existing programs, communicating with parents, and training your staff. With help from respected experts in the field of autism and special education, experienced parents and caregivers, we have included an introduction to autism and specific strategies that will allow you to lead the way for youth with autism to have the same formative experiences through community organizations that are available to their typical peers.
