PUSHING FORWARD - SKATEBOARDING FOR CHILDREN ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM.

OnBoard Skate’s Pushing Forward skateboard programme for children on the Autism spectrum has been designed to empower these children to become more physically active by providing them with the necessary skills and confidence to be able to engage in regular skateboarding activity alongside typically developed children in community spaces. Unlike traditional sports that tend to focus on the best athletes (and marginalise the rest) in the pursuit of winning, skateboarding focuses on personal progress and lifelong learning by providing engaging, action centred, enjoyable and non-judgemental activities driven by an inclusive, “challenge by choice” learning philosophy.
