Golf Instruction at The Els Center of Excellence

Els for Autism Foundation staff will conduct research to support the development of therapeutic recreational services and interventions. This line of research will seek to expand on the existing literature on emerging interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) including exercise and music therapy.  Specifically, one goal of this line of research is to establish the efficacy of golf instruction through the Ernie Els #GameOn Autism™ Golf program. In addition, we are launching a pilot for Ernie Els #GameOn Autism™ Fitness, an innovative, family supportive, research-based fitness and wellness program for individuals with ASD. Learn more.
