Squatting - activities of daily living

Proper squat techniques should be used for bend and lift activities of daily living. Many do not realize they should use this form to fill copiers with paper, pick up objects from floors, etc. If you are a beginner with sedentary lifestyle, start with five per day to avoid delayed onset muscle soreness. If you are autistic, have ADHD, anxiety, depression, or other cognitive disorders, start with low repetitions.

What is autism?
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (“NINDS”), autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) pertains to “a group of complex neurodevelopment disorders characterized by repetitive and characteristic patterns of behavior and difficulties with social communication and interaction.”
What are symptoms or signs of ASD?
Symptoms and signs include, but are not limited to:  over focus on certain objects; social impairment; communication difficulties; avoidance of eye contact; and insistence of consistent routine, activities, and/or environment.
What is attention deficit hyper activity disorder?
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (“NIMH”), attention deficit hyper activity disorder (“ADHD”) “is a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development.”
What are symptoms or signs of ADHD?
Symptoms and signs include, but are not limited to:  fidgeting; running, dashing, or climbing; inability to engage in activities quietly; constant motor functioning “as if driven by a motor” (NIMH), constant talking, and interrupting; inattention to details, careless mistakes; inattention to tasks, conversations, etc.; not following through on instructions or failure to complete tasks; rapid loss of focus, easily sidetracked.
What do autism and ADHD have in common?
Both autism and ADHD involve motor function overstimulation.  Due to great patience required to care for persons with autism and ADHD, many often overlook simple therapies and modalities such as exercise.  As such, these individuals may lack fitness and the confidence to engage in sports and physical activities.
Why is exercise important for autism and ADHD?
Exercise expends the energy of motor functioning affected by autism and ADHD.  As such, symptoms tend to decrease.  Several research studies have provided empirical evidence, supporting positive effects of exercise on persons with autism and ADHD.  Additionally, regular exercise helps improve lipid profiles, decrease resting heart rate, decrease depression, increase cardiorespiratory endurance, and facilitate more efficient use of physiological energy systems.

Autism and exercise - greater Orlando area

Various research studies evidence positive effects on individuals with autism. Exercise has been shown to decrease perceived aggressive behaviors by utilizing the same motor functions required for said behaviors. Some neurotypical behaviors include, but are not limited to, rocking, object tapping, pacing, hand flapping, aligning or spinning objects, grunting, and snapping. Autistic individuals are more susceptible to sensory overload, resulting in behavioral acts.

Autistic find communication difficult and resort to communication methods that may seem inappropriate, socially unacceptable, or awkward. Exercise can help alleviate the frustration of autistic as well as that of their caregivers.

If you or someone you know is autistic or has ADHD, depression, or other cognitive disorders, and you live in the central Florida area, contact us to learn more about how exercise can help alleviate symptoms of autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, as well as help non autistic family members relieve stress and share positive experiences with autistic children/adults.
