    There's a new type of workout for adults on the Autism spectrum. The workout blends music with exercise. It's called "Conductorcise" because you learn to move like an orchestra conductor. It's a great way to learn music and be physical at the same time.

    It makes for a lively workout. People on the Autism spectrum have neuro-developmental disorders that affect language, behavior and social skills, and they often don't get enough exercise. A lot of them are just unable, endurance and stamina is just very low and it's seen across the board in research with individuals on the spectrum.
