Play4Autism is a nonprofit whose mission is to increase the public’s awareness and acceptance of autism, while improving the quality of life and hope for children.
The nonprofit is located at 88-11 Doran Avenue in Glendale.
Play4Autism’s Kidz into Action program affects about 100 children and their families each year to improve communication skills, self-esteem and social interaction to lead a healthy, productive and fulfilling life.
Their programs include music, sports, yoga, martial arts, arts and crafts, and much more. They help autistic children with leadership development, motor skills, behavior, sensory perceptions and teamwork.
Over the weekend, Play4Autism hosted its 2nd annual Golfing for Autism Tournament at the Kissena Golf Course in Fresh Meadows.
