In this Autism Chess Club, teens and adults with Autism or related disabilities will enjoy the game of chess. If they are a novice or expert in chess, they will enjoy this time to socially interact with others. This program is being offered as an outlet to offer more opportunities for our teens and adults with ASD to learn new skills and gain friendship amongst those with a common interest. This class is being offered FREE of charge. We provide the chess sets to accommodate up to 12 players in one session.

Join us for the game of chess!

Note: Space is limited, so RSVP’ing in advance is important to reserve a spot for the chess player.
