Athletes for Autism’s (A4A) diet and nutrition program is designed as a means for counseling parents and autistic adults who might be dealing with struggles in maintaining a healthy intake of nutrients because of texture, smell or taste limitations and/or lifestyle habits.
A4A and its partners are committed to providing valuable resources such as Dietitians to educate about the benefits of adopting healthy eating habits, offering alternatives to less popular foods, and alternatives based on sensory needs.

Athletes for Autism’s (A4A) fitness campaign is designed to offer fitness opportunities to children, adults and families affected by autism.
Many people are missing structured physical activity from their daily routine because they have fallen into the habit of spending the bulk of their free time playing video games, watching tv or on computers. Many schools have also had to eliminate gym classes due to budget cuts. This has led to an epidemic of weight related problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure for all age groups.
