Cole has been offering Autism Fitness Training Services for adults in the Austin area for a year. She has certifications that allow her to work with individuals with autism including; Autism Fitness® certification training, ABA experience, and corrective physical training. Cole is familiar with the gross and fine motor coordination challenges that some individuals with autism experience, and will incorporate that knowledge into exercise and fitness as needed. It is Cole’s objective to not only provide an excellent resource for individuals and families, but also to make exercise an enjoyable thing that individuals with autism can look forward to doing!
If you cannot attend please give Cole 24 hours notice as we are limiting the size of the group & may have a waitlist! Thank you!
About the group:

Parent/caregiver is required to stay for first few group routines if participant may have trouble participating for any reason*. (wandering off, behavioral issues, etc). Positive reinforcement encouraged!
All willing participants will be taken through different physical activities/exercises for 1 hour
*You are encouraged to email Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org at with any potential issues. Everyone is welcome, however, a parent/caregiver should attend the first few sessions until instructional control has been established and rapport has been built with the attendee if participant can’t participate independently. The parent/caregiver is not required to take part in the exercise group, but should stay for the first few sessions!
Participants should stop at the front desk and sign the visitor form. Due to the smaller space we ask that parents/caretakers wait outside (there are plenty of seating areas at the Y). Should parents/caregivers or a therapist need to be present to support the participant, please just let Cole know via email! Thank you!
