New England Yachad Inclusive Bowling Program

Through this grant, New England Yachad created and managed a candlepin bowling program in Massachusetts for adults ages 35+ with Autism or on the Autism Spectrum, including individuals with developmental disabilities who may lack a specific Autism or Autism Spectrum diagnosis. Given that many adults may not have received a proper diagnosis earlier in life, the program makes a point not to exclude participants due to a lack of diagnosis. New England Yachad recruited adults with disabilities and adult volunteers/peers to participate equally in the program. The program provides a bowling pro to offer skills and tips to individuals to enhance their experience.
