Adult Autism Programs ~


We are an alliance that focuses on welcoming people on the Autism Spectrum. The Spears Family YMCA, in collaboration with local autism groups, is starting a program for Adults with Autism and other communication disorders who have trouble with social interactions.

QUAD F is dedicated to developing friendships, motivating each other, having fun and promoting fitness, fusion and community engagement. During the program, the participants will eat together and do at least two of the following activities: swim, basketball, yoga, workout in fitness room, etc. This program was made possible through a challenge grant from the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation. QUAD F is recommended for adults who can participate in a social group independently. To ensure that the group is most beneficial for all, participants must complete an interview prior to enrollment. 

When: Thursdays at 6:30-8:00PM


  • April 4, 11 and 18

Who: Adults on the Autism Spectrum who are 18 and up

Cost: $20.00 YMCA members or $20.00 Non members made possible through a grant from Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation as well as the William A. Stern Foundation's ongoing support.
