Recreation Center

Recreation activities are an important aspect of life as they help reduce stress and energize and strengthen a person’s body, mind, and spirit. There are endless recreation choices including playing or listening to music, traveling, watching movies, gardening, participating or watching sports, sewing, playing games, photography, and more. Commonly, people with autism spectrum disorder have restricted and focused interests, difficulty communicating and interacting with others, and sensitivities to various aspects of the environment. This can greatly impact interest and participation in recreation activities. Use the tools and resources in the Recreation Center to find ways to support and expand recreation and leisure activities. 

This program is made possible by the Kohl’s Autism Awareness Program at Children’s Specialized Hospital through the generosity of Kohl’s Cares
