This webinar is hosted by Providers’ Council Associate Member, Inclusive Fitness.
There’s a silent crisis happening right now: People who are autistic, have Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, brain injury, and other intellectual and social disabilities and delays are getting less meaningful physical activity regularly… and it’s evident. As a result, neurodivergent people suffer from more preventable diseases and accidents, higher early mortality rates, poor mental health, lower social engagement, reduced productivity, costs to families and lower overall quality of life.
We must start to see this crisis for what it is, commit to addressing it together, and change how we perceive and support neurodivergent people so they can live their fullest lives while saving families billions in healthcare costs. During this interactive webinar, we will discuss the invisible crisis and explore the core guiding principles and mindset that we employ at Inclusive Fitness. Our strength-based approach has resulted in challenging this crisis head-on and helping neurodivergent people and their families become strong, confident and engaged in their community.
– To build an appreciation of the critical importance of integrating high-quality strength and conditioning training into the lives of neurodivergent people to improve their strength, confidence, engagement, productivity, and overall quality of life.
– To understand the barriers to incorporating and sustaining adaptive fitness into our expectations and lifestyles, explore practical ways to overcome them and introduce a framework to help attendees shift how they and others think about and support neuroadaptive fitness.
Caregivers, parents and siblings of a neurodivergent child or adult, as well as neurodivergent self-advocates.
