The Autism Spectrum Disorder Bowling League held a celebratory breakfast at the MacDade Bowl in Holmes earlier this month, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.
The event marked the end of the season for the league. The league members now get to enjoy a few weeks off before the action resumes again in June for the summer league.
The league – started by Lauren Pescatore, 28, from Norwood – is specially designed for students suffering from Autism. It includes low lighting, minimal noise as the music is turned off, and only a small group of participants.
The lanes are set up with bumpers to ease the pressure to score, and there is a quiet room upstairs for when one of the participants needs some quiet time.
“Our kids feel comfortable here. It’s a really good way for children and adults with special needs to meet and feel at ease while having fun,” said Joanne Barr, whose 18-year-old son C.J. Barr participates each season.
The league is open to all ages and takes place on Saturdays at a cost of $8 to the participants who are able to attend.
