Let’s Kick It!

Life Skills Play & Leisure

Is your child interested in sports? Do they have readiness skills to participate actively with their peers? This group will build upon your child’s interests and readiness skills (e.g., shooting baskets, kicking a soccer ball) by helping them learn to communicate with their teammates, work together (e.g., passing the ball to score a goal), and be a good sport (e.g., winning or losing) while playing various team sports. Parents/caregivers will participate along with their child to support them to practice the strategies taught. This group will be facilitated by Autism Therapists with supervision for an OAP Clinical Supervisor.
