Surfing for Autism

Stories of Healing & Hope for Families Facing Autism



Surfing for a Cure is a powerful account of families of children with autism using surfing as a form of therapy and healing.

What happens when children and teenagers with autism--a condition known as the fastest growing developmental disorder in the United States--are introduced to surfing in the ocean? There's wipeouts, outbursts and most of all, there's powerful breakthroughs. Surfing for a Cure follows a group of everyday families who attend organized surf events in search of these powerful breakthroughs for their children with autism, using surfing as a unique form of therapy. Not only is this a story about children with autism struggling to stand on surfboards, struggling to speak, struggling to make progress in a world run on the foundation of an understood "normal" (and what scientific research has to say about such); Surfing for a Cure is also an inspirational and uplifting how-to story of how families have chosen to cope with autism by riding waves of healing.
