Children and youth with autism spectrum disorder
For community sport and recreation programs to be inclusive, they need to be built to support the participation of children and youth on the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). For this reason, researchers from the Canadian Disability Participation Project partnered with Ausome Ottawa to create A Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Blueprint identifies 22 strategies to improve access to and inclusivity in sport and recreation programs for children and youth with ASD.
