Surfing the Spectrum is a community-based surfing initiative, connecting volunteers to people with autism in an ocean environment, teaching the participants ocean awareness and promoting the benefits of surf therapy.
Surfing the Spectrum are free volunteer based surf events for children with Autism and their families. Surf Therapy is a new approach to traditional therapeutic techniques which has been growing world-wide. For children with Autism, surfing provides many benefits. Most significantly it aids in development of sensory integration achieved through exposure to new experiences and sensory stimuli (tactile, auditory, visual, proprioceptive, vestibular).
*This event is for children aged 5-18
