These are the overview notes and references from the talk I gave at the Conestoga College 2015 ELCC Conference. It takes me about 5 days to plan out a presentation, pull together all of the research, and set it up on slides.
And it would take a lot longer if I hadn't spent most of my free time hunting down autism information since 1988, when I learned I had autism! However, not everyone can attend conferences...
While I can't share the slides because of the licensing restrictions for the photos, this overview of the ideas and research links gives you an easy back-grounder for understanding:
- Where autism comes from
- Why indoor play increases autism problems
- What improves for autistics outdoors
- Why autistics see magnified benefits from outdoor play
