RYA Sailability Guide to Autism and Boating

RYA Sailability have been working with a range of organisations,sailors and parents to put together some guidance to help volunteers andinstructors when working with autistic sailors.�

Read the Guidance

�Boating is fun social, challenging and also develops key lifeskills. These are benefits which many autistic people can miss out on becauseclubs, instructors and coaches aren�t always aware of the impact of autism.This new guide is full of practical strategies to help with this� explains RYASailability Manager Joff McGill.��

To launch the guide,there is a video that includes a series of interviews with autistic sailors andparents and provides some very interesting insight into the benefits of sailingfor those on the autistic spectrum as well as their top tips to make theirexperience positive.�
