A Stroke Against Autism – Exercise Can Play a Big Part in Curbing Symptoms of Autism and Similar Disorders
“. . . Exercise helps many children with autism spectrum disorders – a term that encompasses various degrees of autism – cope in other ways, medical experts say. Aerobic activity can lengthen an autistic child’s attention span, improve behavior and foster friendships with other kids.
A team of researchers at the Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center at Rutgers State University of New Jersey studied the effect of jogging and walking on a 5-year-old autistic boy.
After jogging, the boy showed much less self-stimulation – which can take many forms including rocking, hand-clapping or biting. The effect diminished after 40 minutes, though his behavior remained better than before his exercise.
“The exercise had to be intense,” center director Sandra Harris said. “It was the vigorous impact of the activity that seemed to make the difference.”. . .”
