Fundamental Movement Skill Acquisition for Children and Adults with Autism : A Practical Guide to Teaching and Assessing Individuals on the Spectrum Paperback / softback

Description

This innovative manual sets out advice on fundamental movement skill acquisition (FMS) and its benefits for improving physical, verbal and social skills for people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Improving FMS can help prevent long term health issues, and increase opportunities for social engagement and independence. The book explores the basic skills of movement (running, catching, throwing, and balance) and how to observe, teach and assess FMS in children and adults with ASD.

There are sections on how to develop and implement a programme for individuals to guide their personal development, and information on planning and tools for assessment are included.

A much needed guide on how to combat impairment of FMS, the book also highlights the numerous benefits of such an approach in relation to behaviour, lifestyle, health and education.
