Topics of Discussion


Health and well-being – the overall state of one’s physical, mental, and emotional functioning – define one’s ability to engage with daily tasks, to achieve success in those tasks, to build meaningful relationships with others, and to cope with the stressors, challenges, and obstacles that naturally arise in the course of daily living. All of this is especially true for individuals with ASD. The morning of Day One will focus on the dynamic, critical, and interrelated importance of nutrition, mental health, and sleep for people living with ASD.


Self-expression and personal identity are vital for everyone. The afternoon of Day One will illustrate how arts and leisure activities, such as art, dance, music, cooking, gardening, and other clubs/hobbies, are necessary for individuals with ASD as they help improve not only gross and fine motor skills, speech-language, and behavior but also assist in the development of social skills, confidence, and a sense of self.


Beyond the well-known results of improved circulation, a strengthened immune system, and other physical and physiological benefits, sports and physical activities provide a unique opportunity to benefit individuals impacted by ASD in significant ways. The focus of Day Two is to promote sports and physical activities not merely as ends in and of themselves but rather as the means through which and a platform on which other therapeutic interventions such as speech-language, occupational, and behavior therapies, are built.
