CEU Webinar | Working With Special Populations: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Fitness Integration


According to the CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, 1 in 44 children has been diagnosed with ASD. The likelihood becomes much higher fitness professionals will interact with clients having ASD because this is the future adult population. There are social communication and restrictive and/or repetitive behaviors that can influence physical activity among this population. As fitness professionals, working with special populations requires adaptations and accommodations.

This webinar will address the knowledge and skills trainers can practice when working with the ASD population, who are also at higher risk for obesity compared to persons without ASD.

Continuing Education: Product option “Webinar + CEU Quiz” provides one (1) CEU toward renewal of any MedFit Classroom fitness specialization.
