I facilitate therapeutic yoga-based socialization groups for children with Aspergers. The program is called Kid Connect and the website is www.socialskillsgroupsct.com. I am located in Greenwich, CT.

Yoga for Beginners

I personally can witness that Yoga practice is extremely helpful for people in the Autism Spectrum.

I have worked with about a dozen Autistic children and find it unfortunate that there aren't any afterschool activities available to the Higher Functioning kids. I'm wondering if anyone out there has any thoughts on how / where we might create a Summer Camp, and or After School Program for this population. I'm thinking 4 - 6 week segments of Art, Yoga, Building a Birdhouse, Legos, Drama, Creative Writing, Book Club, Computers and a chance to bring special interests to the table. Also wonder what the need/desire for such a program might be.
