The innovative golf program started in 2013, in collaboration with The First Tee ® and PGA REACH. Infused with evidence-based practices for teaching golf to people with ASD, Ernie Els #GameON Autism Golf is designed to build self-esteem and confidence in a fun, welcoming and supportive environment; encouraging participants to learn golf skills while practicing specific autism learning concepts including communication, emotional regulation, motor, and social skills.
Participants will learn and practice foundational motor skills through fun athletic games and golf activities while practicing social/communication skills in each class.
