Promoting surfing as therapy for kids with autism
Autism is a serious developmental disorder that affects the ability to communicate and interact.
Ocean Heroes is a charity set up in Australia that uses surfing as a therapy for those living with autism.
Children with autism are mostly affected by anxiety and self-esteem issues.
So, the charity makes sure to help the children with autism feel comfortable in the water and find the sport of surfing relaxing and peaceful.
Such surfing events promotes inclusion and helps children with autism become more calm and confident.
