Aceing Autism is led by Program Directors: Adrienne Bransky and Matthew Bransky
- Aceing Autism offers a weekly program to teach children on the autistic spectrum the game of tennis while improving their gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and social skills.
- We run 3 seasons a year: Fall (Mid September through Mid November), Spring (Early February through Early April), and Summer (Early June through Mid July)
- Fall and Spring Seasons run 7-9 weeks and Summer Season runs 6-7 weeks
Our tennis programs benefit your child in many ways, with the overall goal being to have FUN!
Our goal is to provide an hour break for parents during which you can watch your child develop into a tennis player! Our clinics aim to develop your child’s motor skills, hand eye coordination, build confidence and improve their general socialization, all within a FUN, controlled environment.
Our Program Directors typically have either tennis or autism backgrounds … sometimes even both! We aim to have tennis professionals run the clinics supported by at least one volunteer per child if at all possible. Some children do great with one volunteer; others fare better with more or or different types of support. We try to do what is right for your child. We feel it is our priority to provide a high level of attention to your child while he/she is enjoying tennis with ACEing Autism. We look for every opportunity to incorporate best practices for working with children with ASD into our clinics.
During all classes we provide a tennis racquet that your child can borrow and a t-shirt which they can take home. We typically include an award ceremony during the last clinic of each program session to celebrate each child’s unique and individual progress.
