I have been extremely privileged to be part of professional and youth soccer for over 19 years.My experience of living, working and integration into multicultural and diverse countries in Europe, Africa and North America through soccer has been the greatest inspiration for Soccer for Autism Inc. This amazing sport has shown me what a powerful tool soccer can be in developing the physical and mental aspects of children and adolescents from all walks of life. In our holistic approach to serving children and adolescents we use various activities through the arts and sports to include all children across the spectrum.
Everyone related to our organization believes in equal opportunity which allows children with Autism and Intellectual disabilities to benefit from the scientific developments related to professional soccer through sport science, knowledge, technology, empathy and experience.
