Improving Outcomes Since 2013
Social Fitness Behavior
1:1 Fitness Skill Independence
Using applied behavior analysis, we provide in-person one on one fitness instruction to enhance the health and activity of our learners. The special education community is uniquely susceptible to sedentary behavior. Our classes are designed to infuse movement behavior into the lives of individuals with special needs.
Sports and Recreation Skill Development
Using a methodology rooted in applied behavior analysis, learners will progress through elements of BX Movement’s multi-sport curriculum. Classes will involve learning foundational elements of multiple sports, including but not limited to, soccer, football, basketball, baseball, etc. Many social relationships are made during moments of recreation, but getting involved can be intimidating for individuals who may not yet have the foundational movement skills to participate. This is especially true for members of the special education community.
Learners are able to begin in group classes where they will directly apply learned social skills within the context of the activities being performed (fitness, recreational sports, etc.). Learners in our 1:1 settings may wish to supplement with group classes as well.
Summer Social Fitness Groups
We offer a multi-week social fitness group during the summer. The group meets for three hours a day, includes lunch, and focuses on recreational activities found at social gatherings, like family bbqs, in the summer. We teach games like Cornhole, Bocce Ball, Volley Ball, as well as activities like hiking, so that when the family gets together everyone is able to participate!
