UCF Helps Empower Kids With Autism Through Judo
It’s a Saturday afternoon as Brian Burns and his dad get ready for Judo class but it’s not just any Judo class. “We developed a judo program for children with autism spectrum disorder. This particular program is actually working with the family so the families actually do judo together,” said Jeanette Garcia, an associate professor in health sciences at UCF. The program was created by researchers at UCF’s College of Health Professions and Sciences.
