In Level 1, you’ll uncover the complex intersection of Applied Behavior Analysis, Learning Styles & Systems in Education and Exercise Sciences, that together form the underlying functional framework of Autism Fitness. You’ll explore Autism – the medical history, symptoms, and evidence-based strategies to overcome known developmental deficits, plus unique ways to adapt fitness programming to meet these unique needs.

At Parent and Caregiver Night, the training will complement what certified Autism Fitness professionals will offer in their work. You will learn what your child or loved one is learning in an Autism Fitness program, and be able to reinforce those exercises at home. This is a great opportunity for parents and caregivers of an individual with autism to learn more about the Autism Fitness method.

There is no other training like this in the world and a must if you’re planning or already are bringing fitness programs to those with autism. Eric Chessen’s Autism Fitness Certification is the culmination of Autism Fitness programming strategies tested, implemented, and refined over a decade.
