BENEFITING: MARTY TURCIOS THERAPEUTIC GOLF CLINIC
We teach therapeutic golf to teens and adults with autism. We teach our students how to go golfing as well as how to golf. Sometimes going to the counter to pick up a bucket of range balls is the hardest thing some students can do. We teach the students how to follow a calendar, know when class is and arrange their own transportation. Using golf we teach responsible use of leisure time, which is the option to irresponsible use of leisure time which brings about lethargy and substance abuse.
