What is the Get Autism Active Resource Kit?
The GetAutismActive Online Resource Kit is a well established teaching and learning tool used by educators, coaches and parents that addresses motor delay and impairment for autistic children and adults. It includes 19 identified skills that often show signs of delay for example balance, co-ordination, etc. It is designed using an “eclectic” approach which means a number of teaching and learing methodologies are used to enhance learning specific to the autistic population.
Hence each skill comes with:
- A video demonstration
- A checklist of how the skill is broken down into steps
- A voice over prompt with key cues
- An incidental teaching and learning guide
- Proprioceptive stretches are included to use before and after each session
- An evaluation tool for each session
