Description: Designed for ASD youth ages 6 to 12.

Many children with motor planning and social challenges find gym class, recess, staying physically active, and even simple recess or social games extremely frustrating. Not feeling successful in physical play with peers can lead to poor self esteem.

To help, the Autism Society—Omaha Support Network has developed Recreation Club. Kids in need of more movement assistance and/or social coaching come together every week to work on gym activities, physical fitness exercises, and even social games played on their own school playgrounds. This interactive, activity-based program will emphasize improving physical competence while developing social skills to improve peer interactions. Activities have been designed to improve body awareness, strength and motor skills.

Kids will also learn sportsmanship, teamwork and problem-solving skills during gameplay. Our goal is to improve ability and confidence for school, encourage continued physical fitness into their later teen and adult years, help them learn to social skills to interact with their peers in recreational activities in their daily lives.

In order to maximize the experience for all participants, all registrants will be required to bring along a "Buddy" - who will NEED to remain on the premises at all times. This Buddy can be a parent or sibling over 16 years of age. We understand that not all athletes will want to work with their Buddy and we will help facilitate a Buddy Swap if desired. However, in order to achieve our goals for all of our participants it is important that we are able to provide consistent one to one support for every participant. This is also a great way for the family to grow together in your recreational endeavors!

Cost is $65 for the full 6-week program payable AT registration online.
