Our survey results show that ACEing Autism’s program is a great vehicle to help connect kids through tennis with adaptive warm-ups and racquet skills, hand-eye coordination drills and games. Our program helps build a foundation for children to continue to engage in physical activity and provides broad areas of improvement in both motor and non-motor areas after participation.
Tennis skills, motor skills, and social skills showed the greatest area of improvement, suggesting that ACEing Autism is particularly well-adapted to engage children in group-based tennis and motor-skill activities that are also socially engaging with other participants and volunteers. ACEing Autism assesses participants’ improvement annually.
