The CPFC Foundation's fantastic weekly football coaching sessions for boys and girls on the autistic spectrum re-start on Wednesday 2nd October at Fenstanton School.
These sessions have been specially designed to allow these youngsters the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful game in a safe and friendly environment, whilst developing their gross motor skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination.
Autism and aspergers syndrome are part of a range of related developmental disorders known as autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). They begin in childhood and last through adulthood. In England, it is estimated that one in every 100 children has an ASD, but there is no mainstream provision for children to participate in sporting activities.
We envisage this will be the beginning of a long running self-sustaining football and social program that will leave a real footprint on an area of our society that has been marginalised within the sporting community.
The sessions will run from Wednesday 2nd October until 11th December, at Fenstanton School, Tulse Hill, London, SW2 3PW. Each session costs £3 per child.
