Enriching the lives of families living with autism through sport.
“Necessity is the mother of invention”
Sports are a huge part of our family life. Our children are involved in several team and individual sports. Growing up, we were both involved in competitive sports. As we explored autism services in the region, we noted a lack of affordable and accessible sports programming for children with autism and their families.
While our sons, one of whom is on the autism spectrum, are able to play in mainstream programs, we felt compelled to build this opportunity for all children on the autism spectrum as well as their family members.
