Surfers for Autism
Author: Krista Flack, MS OTR/L
Surfers For Autism is coming to Tybee Island on September 16th! This event is dedicated to the introduction of the sport of surfing to children with special needs. “At a SFA event, our surfers are provided a safe environment where two to four highly skilled and trained surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost. This is a very special day where children with ASD interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities. These events are examples of inclusion at the highest level.”
