I CAN Develop Physical Literacy: Manual

I CAN Develop Physical Literacy is a resource for anyone in the community working with children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) continuum. It is intended to serve as a support tool for teachers, coaches and leaders who want to incorporate physical literacy into their programs. The resource will give a brief introduction to ASD, but will focus on support strategies, behaviour support tools, and how to modify activities to create optimal challenge. Although the lesson plans provided are for children age 4-11 years, the support tools are relevant to any age group. The goal is that after reading this resource you will feel like you have the tools needed to effectively include children with Autism into your recreation or sport setting
