Good Directions has appreciated some recent staff training provided by ASPECT about how to connect with boys with autism.

One part that was really good was a section on helping the boys to understand the difference between wrestling and fighting. Wrestling can be a really positive activity but how can you communicate the differences to autistic boys who are basically non verbal? Some ideas presented were: 1. use a wrestling mat so that it happens in appropriate places 2. participants are allowed to leave the mat anytime they want  3. have a timer that goes off so that everyone knows when to stop - starting out with only a couple of minutes 4. wear helmet and gloves as uniform 5. practice approved moves - using one on one or video 6. supervise and enjoy.
