Autism in Ocala:   We wish to open an Autism center here in Ocala Florida.  As previous board members of Ocala Autism Support Network, we were able to see first hand what families who have children on the Autism Spectrum needed and were missing.  In an effort to be able to provide these services, therapies and assistive devices, KidGenius was born.

Sponsor a Season of Flying Knights Karate Class

$525.00

Your sponsorship  will allow up to 8 children with special needs to participate in a ten week session of the Flying Knights Karate programas well as provide them each with a uniform to wear during class.  Martial Arts can “help ease the symptoms of [ADHD]: impulsiveness, inability to concentrate and, in some cases, hyperactivity.  a 2010 research project conducted by the University of Wisconsin found that in the process of learning martial arts, children became more socially assertive and cooperative. In addition, the study found that the children demonstrated better balance and coordination; eye contact improved; and better play skills developed. Children who practice martial arts  generally have strong social skills, fight less often, and perform well in school. And this effect is particularly pronounced in at-risk children or those with special needs.
