Country Autism Network is partnering with Surfers Healing in 2019.
What is Surfers Healing? www.surfershealing.org
Surfers Healing introduces and provides the unique experience of surfing to children on the autism spectrum. We ride waves together and tap into the tranquillity of the ocean to help calm the sensory overload that can often accompany autism.
On the surface, it seems simple, our surf days give children with autism and their families a fun, engaging day at the beach. But go deeper, and you’ll see it’s so much more than that. Through the simple act of surfing, we’re defying the status quo.
When we help kids get up on a board, we’re challenging preconceived notions of capability. When we encourage participants to dive in, we’re supporting them to engage with the world. And when we go out and ride waves together, we’re empowering families to believe their kids ‘can’.
