Mikhaila Gentles receives a surfing lesson from a Jamaica Surfing Association (JSA) instructor at the recently held Surfing for Autism event. In preparation for Autism Awareness Month, which will observed in April, the Jamaica Autism Support Association (JASA), the JSA, and the Rotary Club of Trafalgar New Heights hosted 50 children with autism spectrum disorder and their families at Cable Hut Beach for the second annual Surfing for Autism. Inspired by similar efforts in the United States, JASA designed the event to bring an innovative form of therapy to children with autism in Jamaica. The initiative will also include a summer surfing camp.
