Register Now for Free ASkate Skateboard Clinic for Kids with Autism
Ever thought that, because of the limitations of autism, your son or daughter could never participate in an activity like skateboarding? A.Skate Foundation of Birmingham, Alabama, has run numerous clinics across the country that are geared specifically toward giving kids of every age and ability the opportunity to try skateboarding in a safe, sensory-friendly environment with caring volunteers from the skate community.

The Autism Society of Boulder County is sponsoring a FREE A.Skate clinic on Sunday, August 4, at Erie Community Skate Park.
There is no age limit for this clinic; it is for "kids" of all ages who want to try skateboarding, whether that means sitting, standing upright or being held by someone on the board--whatever works for your child.

There are still lessons available in the 9 am, 10 am and 11 am time slots. No walk-ins will be admitted; you must register in advance at www.askate.org. After you have signed up, you will receive confirmation--along with detailed information about what to expect--1-2 weeks before the event.

The Erie Skate Park will be closed to the pubic on the morning of August 4 for this special event.
