    These printables are beautiful. I am the parent to two wonderful children with autism and have just started working at our local
    YMCA. For April, they have allowed me to display information for Autism Awareness and your printables are perfect. Your blog is very informative without being too overwhelming and explains ways to get the ball rolling if you are concerned about having a child with ASD. I have been looking for a good resource to share! Thank you!!!!

      Hello Alicia,

      I am sorry to say, I do not have spanish versions of these Autism Awareness designs. Maybe in the future I could work towards doing that. Thanks so much for the idea. All the best.

    I love all of them! I am currently working on my masters degree in Adapted Physical Education. I chose “Autism” as my final project topic and all I must say that your awareness printables are the best that I have seen. A lot of my classmates were scared to pick “autism” as a topic. I think mainly because people are afraid of what they do not know. I am a PE teacher currently and my kids love the activities that I design for them. I incorporate not just physical activities but sensory activities as well. A lot of PE teachers are not informed when it comes to autistic students and just offered free play time for their PE time slots. Structure and having patience are the key. I work with the autism teacher at my school. Whatever book they are reading for the week for language arts then I will come up with creative physical activities that relate to the book’s characters or story overall. Do you mind if I use your printables to hand out to my fellow classmates during my presentation along with your website info? Great job!

      Laura, I am so happy to read this comment. I am thrilled to see that someone is excited to work with children on the Autism Spectrum in the educational field. Too often, it is the opposite situation, where educators feel anxious, intimidated, or angry about having to interact with these children. It is also refreshing to see educational professionals working together to find solutions! I tried to work the student’s classroom literature into my art curriculum too. I so agree with you about the structure being important in the PE sessions. I can say after my time in the classroom teaching, now homeschooling, movement has/is a major part of success. Both of my boys are diagnosed with ASD and one is a sensory seeker, the other a sensory-averter. However, in each case, both boys need that sensory integration to help them process and improve not only motor skills and mindfulness but language, and knowledge acquisition too. My oldest was emerging verbal at 6 years old and we placed him on a winter swim team. His therapists were hesitant but supportive, and adding that full immersion physical activity burst him into speech/language production. Finding the right sensory diet is huge. I have also noticed over the years that modeling is so much easier in the physical setting. I often tell coaches or teachers working with my son, let him be further back in the line so he can watch the others. He won’t tune in if there is too much verbal explanation. He is more intuitive and visual. I even let him pace around, now that he is much older, to help him explain himself or relate a lot of spoken word and even learning new information. It was thru physical activities like learning how to throw a ball, or chest pass, etc that I learned to use simple 1,2,3 instructions with concise direction. For example, “Take a step, wind up, release”, paired with the action and sometimes adding a modulation of sound (sing song) boom, he could execute it with ease. Too many words and he was tuned out. Finding ways to work their vestibular, proprioception, tactile, and modulation abilities is huge for success. It helps to form those pathways in the brain that just weren’t there before. My oldest has transformed from a toddler that had multiple sensory overloaded meltdowns every day, to a very self regulated, calm, well spoken, brilliant 11 year old boy. Movement and sensory integration was pivotal, paired with lots of consistent occupational, ABA/behavioral, and speech intervention, to his success. I commend you and wish you all the best in your work. Please feel free to use anything on the site. That’s why I put it out there, in the hopes that it can do some good in some small way. Thanks so much for your comments. All the best!
