MOVE with AutismBC Try it Sessions by Goodlife Kids
August 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
MOVE with AutismBC is a virtual offering led by a MOVE Coach. AutismBC members are provided the opportunity to take place in weekly online fitness classes. AutismBC and Goodlife Kids Foundation cover all the costs of this program to offer this to AutismBC Members at no cost to the families.
MOVE is a physical activity program that focuses on physical literacy and building a love of fitness. Having fun is a major component! Our Coaches work with our Participants to learn what they like, and those likes get incorporated into the program.
Currently, we have some of the MOVE programming available on the GoodLife YouTube channel. However, this does not accurately show the experience participants receive during a live MOVE class. MOVE Coaches interact with each Participant and gently encourages them while providing instruction.
MOVE Participant Criteria:
- Ages 12-21
- Diagnosis of intellectual disability or autism
- For those under the age of majority, a caregiver should be present (and participating – fitness is more fun with friends!)
- Participants can live anywhere in Canada
You can also try out the twice a month Try It Sessions! 5pm PST on the first and third Tuesday of every month.
