Above Limits, a local non-profit foundation, will be hosting an “Autism Climbs” event on Sunday, October 4 2015 at 3:00pm at Climbnasium. Five participants, male and female, are entering into a 6-session program designed to use innovative activities, like climbing, to decrease social isolation in young adults with autism and capture some data about its effectivity. For this particular “Autism Climbs” event, Above Limits is collaborating with the Hope & Harvest Project, founded by clinician Amy Silva. Inclusive, adaptive climbing events and programming occur regularly at both Climbnasium near Mechanicsburg and The Nook Sports Complex, near Lancaster. Climbers with varied disabilities and their families have the opportunity to participate in these programs which have been initiated by Above Limits and included many collaborative partners.
