    I am a recreational therapist (CTRS) with a MS in Exercise Physiology. I currently work at an inpatient psychiatric hospital and my primary patients are individuals with ASD who are also aggressive. I do some fine motor activities with them, but my primary work is gross motor movement, typically using ideas I see you have presented. I just stumbled across your page today in working to put together a presentation for new medical residents and fellows joining our unit. It is always nice to find somebody with similar thoughts and ideas to what we believe. Thanks for sharing. So many folks believe these “myths,” and I am working daily to change these beliefs.
