Athletes 4 Autism

a4a_logoAthletes 4 Autism promotes positive play and social skill-building through weekly inclusive sports lessons for kids with and without autism.

When typical children participate, they gain first-hand friendships with kids who have autism, which fosters acceptance and appreciation for everyone’s unique abilities.

Children who have autism are afforded the additional benefit of practicing and discussing a predictable, healthy activity that can translate across the lifespan.

All kids improve gross motor skills, learn the rules of the game, stand up to bullying, make friends, and how to explain autism to someone who doesn’t understand it.
