The Play4Autism Foundation is a Registered Non-for-profit organization
(in the States of Arizona and New York) and was founded in December 2011
by President and former pro hockey player/coach Greg Vasicek.
When asked about the organization, Greg said that "Just seeing a smile on a child's face after tossing a football around for five minutes and the proud look (and some tears) of his mother, is what it's all about.”
Most children with Autism are educated in segregated classrooms with children with similar disabilities which limits interaction with typical peers. Outside of school, children with autism are often ostracized due to their unusual or compulsive behaviors. Kidz into Action offers children the opportunity to improve their self-esteem and social skills, increase their communication & leadership skills and teach them how to sustain lifelong physical activity. This helps them build a foundation for a healthy, productive and fulfilling life. By teaching them the basics of team play, the children learn the value of teamwork and community in a fun and safe atmosphere.
