Why Autism and Exercise are a Blankety-Blank!

"He's the fastest athlete I have... 
if only he would run toward the finish line! "
Nicks APE Coach

This is how Nick feels about exercise! Let's face it without the social motivation of winning as the goal, sports just don't have the same pull.  

In this case, Nick preferred sleep over playing basketball!. His sport of choice jumping up and down. The result great legs, but he only does this when he wants too which means it falls short of an exercise routine.  As most of you know he's enrolled in soccer now and I'm excited to see how it goes. He won't run to get a goal, but he's staying in the game and going up and down that court, which is amazing for him (again refer to the picture above).  


In time, maybe in time.
