1802

Abstract

It is difficult to find place among peers for children with autism spectrum disorders, so it is necessary to equip them for this with as many instruments as possible. Sport can be a support and a guide to the society for many children, because a good player is valued in any team, even if he is a bit strange and does not quite fit into the team. The co-founder, head of the Israeli Center for Correction of Autism and Learning Problems «SULAMOT Group» and the mother of an adolescent with autism is reflecting on the questions of the role of sport in habilitation and socialization of children with autism spectrum disorders.
