Everyone is unique. We all have strengths and weaknesses, we may be better at certain things over others, and some of us are naturally attuned to certain modes of learning over others as well. For kids who are on the spectrum, learning a variety of different skills can be difficult, but it is still possible – especially if things are approached in unique and interactive ways that meet the needs of such individuals. Here at Sensory Taekwon-Do we offer autism taekwondo in Tenafly that aims to engage kids in unique ways that can help them grow and learn.
Here at Sensory Taekwon-Do we offer specialized taekwondo classes for kids with autism. Our program is completely unique and is geared towards kids of all kinds who are on the spectrum. Our martial arts program is designed to match each child’s neurological profile – since there are so many different symptoms associated with varying degrees of autism and on each person individually, we create a program that is molded to the needs of each child that walks through our doors. We offer a variety of different sessions, including group sessions as well as one-on-one sessions. Autism taekwondo in Tenafly engages kids by stimulating areas in the brain that incorporate balance, body awareness, muscle coordination, strength and working memory, we can promote growth and improve connectivity within the pathways of the brain. Since kids who are on the spectrum are affected by a wide range of different symptoms, effective treatment often requires the whole brain to be at work. Our taekwondo instructor stimulates all of the senses during each session in order to accomplish this. We accept children who have been diagnosed with a wide range of different conditions including autism, PDD, Asperger’s, ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, learning and memory problems, Down’s syndrome, and more.
If your child is on the spectrum, then autism taekwondo in Tenafly may be just the thing they need. Our instructors are kind, caring and understanding and they do all they can to make each and every session special and productive at the same time. If you would like to learn more about the taekwondo programs that we offer children with autism or any other learning disabilities, please call us here at Sensory Taekwon-Do today.
