All kids and youth with autism and intellectual disabilities experience the joys and benefits of being active.
The Part We Play
GoodLife Kids Foundation enables and supports kids and youth with autism and intellectual disabilities through physical activity and fitness.
Being active is an important part of everyone’s healthy development. Physical activity participation helps kids and youth not only develop strength, coordination, and flexibility – but also plays a significant role in social development. It provides organic opportunities to learn skills like working together, taking turns, listening, and following instructions. Even better, being active is FUN!
Kids and youth with autism and intellectual disabilities often face additional barriers to participation in physical activity including higher cost for adapted programming, a lack of available programs that suit their needs, and inaccessible environments. Together, we’re helping break down barriers so that more kids and youth with autism and intellectual disabilities will have the chance to build belonging, confidence, and healthy active lives.
