Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Researchers conducted a systematic review that analyzed leisure participation among individuals with ASD between the ages of 6 and 22. Physical, recreational, and social leisure were examined. Results showed that as individuals transition from childhood to adolescence, there is a decline in the amount of leisure participation. Clinicians can utilize these results to guide their practices and maximize outcomes within this population to increase leisure engagement.
