Autism and sport

Over the past year we have seen an increase in the resources dedicated to creating widespread awareness  about autism. Autism Speaks, Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism and Athletes Against Autism are three of the many organizations spearheading the effort to help bring a cure to the disorder through education and fundraising.

As with other challenging disorders, conditions, and diseases, the effort to finding a cure must be balanced with efforts to help those currently with these obstacles still live the lives they desire and deserve. Often that includes participation in sports.

We present below a video that highlights a great program through the Special Olympics taking place in Southern California.
