Individuals with autism tend to be diverse. Therefore, it is difficult to use words such as all or none when describing this group.
Five-year-old Anakin loves gymnastics! He has been attending our summer day camps and we learned that he is interested in gymnastics. He is so excited that is registered for Fun in the Gym for the fall. “He also loves playing at Wonderhub Saskatoon, one of his favorite places”, says his mother Tamara. The summer day camps allowed Anakin to strengthen his play skills with peers and encouraged him through creativity, curiosity and collaboration. Tamara was able to remind him of how much fun he had and that she always came back, when he went for his first day of kindergarten recently. He was having some separation anxiety and didn’t want her to leave him so having the positive experience he had in day camp allowed her to slip away and for him to enjoy all the new experiences he’s having in kindergarten.
