Improving and making great friends along the way.
“We joined the MOVE Program, Autism Services Saskatoon, with Coach Katie Bolibruck in January 2023. Since Jasraj joined, he looks forward to the class each Tuesday and Thursday. Jasraj enjoys many aspects of the program such as the ability to join virtually, a convenient time slot in the evening and the exercises offered. However, the most enjoyable aspect of the program for us is the “game time”. This is because having a mission tied with the exercises like dodging, spinning makes them meaningful and enjoyable. Regular breaks built into the program also gives ample opportunity for recovery and keeps us, especially Jasraj, ready for more.
The “game time” has also positively impacted us because it has helped Jasraj achieve better concentration. One of Jasraj’s goal big goals is to increase his attention span. Since joining the program, he has been able to improve from 5 minutes to 10 minutes and we are still making progress.
The MOVE Program is special and appealing to us because we have been able to enjoy dancing, yoga and aerobic exercises while being in a supportive, positive and amicable environment. In addition, we have been able to make great friends along the way. Thank you so much Autism Services Saskatoon and Coach Katie for helping promote and organize this MOVE Class. We would totally recommend this program to other parents.”
