Leisure activity participation is important for health and well-being. This study examined differences between children with autism spectrum disorders and controls from 6 to 17 years old in a large national database. An increasing disparity among many types of leisure participation was seen as age increased. This reinforces the importance of intervention at an early age to increase participation in these activities to promote development of skills that contribute to adult competencies.
