Physical activity is an evolutionary mandate, and is fundamental for physiological operations. Play is a profound biological process; it shapes the brain, enlivens the intellect, fosters complex social interaction, and is at the core of creativity and innovation. Revolutionary new science reveals the secrets of movement and play and their indispensable role for optimal mental and physical health and to enable us to unlock human potential. Yet in this digital age, the opportunity for play and movement diminishes day by day with rising challenges in emotional self-regulation, behavior and learning. Recently much more attention has been given to children and adults with ASD and studies document how varying modes of physical activity benefit attention and memory in particular, and also help individuals with ASD improve feelings of well-being, reduce stress, and improve behavior, attention, learning, performing and social interactions in children.
