Sensory-friendly sports featured at Autism Sports Academy in Detroit

Centria Autism and the Detroit Police Athletic League are teaming up for the third annual Autism Sports Academy.

According to a release, the primary purpose of the camp is to help children with ASD develop social skills in a group setting.

“Research shows that playing sports can significantly help kids with ASD improve motor skills and social functioning,” said Dr. Sarah Dunkel-Jackson, Director of Clinical Learning and Development for Centria Autism Services, in a release. “In the end though, they’re just kids who want to play and have fun with friends. No organization understands that better than the amazing folks at PAL. We’re really excited to have them as partners for this program.”
