Research studies indicates that involvement in athletics and social activities can help children with behavioral issues decrease by 20-25% and also decrease depression and anxiety. Jeremy Samson, a fitness trainer/manager with Asperger’s from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for three weeks toured the United States teaching his successful program Time 2 Train. On May 12th we both presented at the Navigating Autism Today Conference at the Bavarian Inn, Frankenmuth, MI. I had the pleasure to have lunch with Jeremy and listen to his presentation.
Jean Piaget, the Swiss psychologist who mapped out the stages of children’s cognitive development, believed movement is essential to learning. Piaget stated, “Children learn by physically manipulating objects and seeing how they work.” Time 2 Train helps individuals with autism learn social skills and gain fine motor skills through exercise, athletics and social interaction.

Personal Development Program to build necessary executive functioning skills for young adults to adults with Autism, Asperger's to enable easier, successful transition into the wider, broader community.
Asperger's is NOT a disability but a different way of functioning, thinking.
Here at Time 2 Train we ensure nothing but a positive mind frame and attitude, using the traits of Asperger's we ensure we understand and achieve better control through support , management and education.
Time 2 Train is a nationally, internationally recognised program for Autism, Health + Fitness.
Helping to achieve better understanding and improvement of the overall functioning level for individuals living with Autism + Asperger's
Time 2 Train is NOT a cure for Asperger's but aims to achieve healthy development and improvement, to diminish the traits of A.S to a manageable level.
Using exercise, movement activities and play to analyse and train all ages on the Autism Spectrum in the Time 2 Train Program, we provide feedback to parents through observation, physical performance and behavioural assessments.
Insight into you or your child’s fluency and balance in movement, co-ordination, concentration, confidence and cognitive capacity will empower you or your child to achieve better functionality in a more positive, proactive way.
What is muscle memory?
Muscle memory has been used synonymously with motor learning, which is a form of procedural memory that involves consolidating a specific motor task into memory through repetition.
Repetition of sensory motor patterns, create more specific set of experience dependant synaptic linkages.
When a movement is repeated over time, a long-term muscle memory is created for that task, eventually allowing it to be performed without conscious effort.
This process decreases the need for attention and creates maximum efficiency within the motor and memory systems.
