Outdoor Programs to Help Improve Life of ASD Affected Children

15 Mar 17

A new study was conducted by the Tel Aviv University on the problems of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It states that outdoor challenged based interventions may be effective in reducing the overall severity of ASD.

Statistics say that one in 68 children in US is diagnosed with USD every year. It is a neurodevelopment disorder characterized by socio-communication impairment and restricted and repetitive behaviours and interests. Every child affected by this goes through a tough time socially, emotionally and economically. Research has shown that early diagnosis and treatment can result in huge improvements.

Young subjects were sent for outdoor adventure activities and notable improvements were noticed in their aspect of social cognition, social motivation, and autistic mannerisms. This study was published in Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology.

These outdoor programs use adventure as a challenge to improve the life of people affected by ASD. This also improves intrapersonal and interpersonal relationship.

Researchers are trying to use this technique not just for ASD but also or other issues such as behavioural problems, language skills, and attention span.
