Els for Autism South Africa

Revolutionizes Golf Education for Autistic Learners

Els for Autism South Africa is proud to announce a groundbreaking initiative aimed at transforming the landscape of golf education for autistic learners. As of 2024, the organization is pioneering the introduction of golf clinics within schools across Johannesburg, marking a significant milestone in inclusive sports education.

Golf has long been celebrated for its ability to instill discipline, focus, and camaraderie. However, access to the sport has often been limited for autistic individuals. Recognizing the immense potential for golf to positively impact the lives of autistic learners, Els for Autism South Africa is breaking down barriers and bringing the beautiful game directly to them.

Through these innovative golf clinics, autistic learners in schools across Johannesburg now have the opportunity to engage with the sport in a supportive and inclusive environment.

Led by experienced instructors, the clinics provide tailored instruction, allowing participants to develop fundamental skills, enhance coordination, and foster a love for the game.

We believe that every individual, regardless of their abilities, should have the opportunity to experience the joy and benefits of golf, said Dr. Fatima Abdulla, Facilitator at Els for Autism South Africa.

By bringing golf clinics to schools and catering to the unique needs of autistic learners, we are empowering them to thrive both on and off the course.

The initiative reflects Els for Autism South Africa’s commitment to promoting inclusivity and accessibility in sports.
By partnering with schools and educators, the organization aims to expand the reach of its golf clinics, ensuring that all autistic learners have the chance to participate and excel in the sport.

Els for Autism South Africa invites the community to join in celebrating this milestone in inclusive sports education. Together, we can change the way the game of golf is played and empower autistic learners to reach their full potential.
