…is to increase the public’s awareness and acceptance of Autism, while improving the quality of life and hope for children. They achieve this goal by introducing children on the Autism Spectrum and their families to their “Kidz into Action” Program.
The “Kidz into Action” program helps to improve their self-esteem & social interaction, increase their communication and leadership skills plus teach them how to sustain regular lifelong physical activity as a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. They also believe that by teaching the basics of team play, they will learn the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and community in a fun and safe atmosphere at no cost to their families or minimal costs for Martial Arts and Fitness Clubs.
Autism is known as a complex developmental disability. Experts believe that Autism presents itself during the first three years of a person’s life. The condition is the result of a neurological disorder that has an effect on normal brain function, affecting development of the person’s communication and social interaction skills. People with autism have issues with non-verbal communication, a wide range of social interactions, and activities that include an element of play and/or banter.
