Exercise and Autism – ‘When I run, it is the only time that my brain and my body are at the same speed’.
For some autistic people exercise is key to their well-being and can ever be a deep interest. For others, the idea of sweating, moving, being outdoors is highly uncomfortable. Some new research suggests that exercise may be beneficial in helping autistic people to overcome some of the negative impacts of autism, such as anxiety and depression. In this talk, we will look at the research and some personal examples and think about how we can find an exercise that suits us all.
