Raising a child with autism can be challenging. Izzy Paskowitz knows that first-hand. He has a 22-year-old autistic son named Isaiah who has a difficult time dealing with daily life. But when Izzy takes Isaiah surfing, he is suddenly at peace and happy. That's the reason Paskowitz started Surfers Healing 16 years ago. Since then, Paskowitz has been offering free surfing camps for autistic kids. His organization has several surfer volunteers helping out. They do up to 24 camps a year serving as many as 200 kids per camp throughout the country.
Here's a link to his story: https://vimeo.com/88120617
