The Ernie Els #GameOn Autism™ Golf is a program developed by Els for Autism in collaboration with PGA REACH and The First Tee, that gives children and young adults on the autism spectrum access to the game of golf. The program is aimed at developing social/communication skills, encouraging social interaction and promoting healthy living through golf. Infused with evidence-based practices for teaching golf to individuals with ASD, #GameON Autism Golf is designed to build self-esteem and confidence in a fun, welcoming and supportive environment. The program encourages participants to learn golf skills while practicing specific autism learning objectives, including: communication, regulatory, motor and social skills.
