Basketball is a great sport for kids. Safer, requires less physical courage and is less complex than many other sports. It is true that it requires some sense of depth and height is a key benefit, but this is an early age choice and a child's experience of sports is an eternal memory.
It is very for autistic children that they are less interested in sports-related activities such as basketball. When they are very young, they often get interested and join a basketball team. After a while, the child may lose interest in participating in a basketball tournament or, in the end, will not want to participate in practice or games alike.
This can be very frustrating for parents, especially fathers or grandparents who have a favorite memory of basketball and lifelong friendships that have been part of a team.
Many autistic children, especially asperger types, may still be interested and play basketball. What is important is that there is no expectation that your child will follow the traditional rules and expectations that most children follow when joining the basketball team and learning to play.
It's actually a strictly recreational non-team style game. If your child can not follow and focus on the instructions and does not respond well to the coach or other players, it is time to consider another way. It is more important for your child to be happy and feel that you accept, especially the parents, as happy as your child is part of a basketball team.
If you find that a team-based basketball game does not work, consider regular playing at home or in a local park. Make sure your child takes a little time away from the sport before doing so because he will not receive it properly.
When your child shows you interest, make sure you keep things in free form. Do not worry about any rule, skill, technique, and the like. It's important to simply enjoy the child with the time you spent, which also takes time and hopefully throws a basketball ball.
You might just try to get the ball across to the fourth. It is possible that the ball is bounced from a wall. Try some fun games, for example three times in a row, try to throw the ball – if it does, then jump to the parent like a silly frog!
Later, you can slowly add small adjustments, such as a tip, a ball, or where to target when you throw a ball into a layup. Take it slowly and always make it positive. If you add criticisms or rules, it is very likely that your autistic child will quickly lose interest and actually endure the sport altogether.
