- Around the Block. Create a neighborhood walking path and have your child walk this once or twice daily. The child should wear a pedometer to measure steps and calories and track progress.
- Raise the Bar! You're a Star! Start with a dowel rod and raise it over head and back down. Eventually this can be substituted for weights.
- Chair Squats. This movement is required for most power moves of the lower extremities and most athletic events.
- Push-ups. If your child is able, have them do a designated number of push-ups every day.
- Jumping Jacks. Again, depending on where children are on the spectrum will make a difference in how many they can do.
