This summer Inizio Interventions has been holding a social skills group for children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that is enjoyed by our staff and the children who attend. The children work on fun activities that focus on fine motor, gross motor, and social skills. These activities include songs, arts and crafts, board games and more.
Remember your summers as a child? Some meaningful experiences may be going on a long trip away with your families or swimming on a hot summer day at camp with friends. One thing’s for sure, those good old days were jammed pack with tons of new experiences, social opportunities and plenty of unwritten rules of communication.
Autism is a developmental disability that causes challenges with behavior as well as social and communication delays. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) explains autism spectrum disorder and the criteria that an individual must meet in order to be diagnosed with autism.
