It was a gorgeous day Saturday, May 6th for the last class of the “ACEing Autism – Dallas” spring season. Held weekly on the courts of UT Dallas in Richardson, the program is jointly sponsored by Bryan Whitt, the Head Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach, and the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences. Launched this March by Matthew and Adrienne Bransky, the first season served 22 kids on the autistic spectrum, ages 5 to 18 years. Thanks to the generosity of the Metroplex Tennis League all 22 students participated free of charge.
The program relies very heavily on the assistance of volunteers. This includes local high school students, UT Dallas students, and players from the local tennis community. For more information on volunteering and/or to sign up go to aceingautism.org/volunteers.
Thank you to Adrienne Bransky and her son, Matthew, for giving so generously of there time to run the session thoughtfully and efficiently, so that every child learned new skills and has fun.
More than 35 children are expected to participate in the summer session which begins June 10th and runs for 9 weeks, excluding July 8th.
