Alia Rahabelitation Center
Alia Rehabilitation Center began with a simple idea and mission: To create and maintain a self- sustaining community for individuals with special needs. Alia Rehabilitation Center will be a positive, safe, secure and nurturing environment for adults with special needs where they can develop their unique abilities into meaningful job skills while building friendships, independence and a sense of belonging and purpose.
There is an overwhelmingly compelling need for a community such as ARC . 70% of adults with autism are unable to live independently. Of these, 49% live with family members, creating a huge financial burden on aging parents, and 32% live in residential care facilities, which offer little or no privacy, autonomy, or stimulation. 94% of autistic adults are unable to hold paid, full-time jobs and 65% of autistic adults have difficulty making friends. Without support, families report that young adults regress and lose gains they made in school and intervention programs, are less likely to sustain employment, and are less engaged in their communities.

This Physical Education, Recreation and Leisure volume contains teaching programs specifically designed to address the physical education, recreation, and leisure skills of school-aged students with autism.
