They travel around the United States to provide one on one skate lessons for persons with autism in an environment that is appropriate to their sensory needs in order to learn. We provide this service at no cost to the families who participate. We also provide the skateboard gear and safety equipment (helmets, skateboards, and pads) for the participants to use during their skate session. We strive to make the experience as incredibly successful for the participant as possible! We work with children ages 3 to adulthood. Please be sure to make a note of age and weight if your child is over 100lbs so that we can make sure to have 2 volunteers on hand to work with them! Check their calendar of upcoming events.
