Adult Autism Program: Quad F - Friends, Fun, Fitness & Fusion
We are an alliance that focuses on welcoming people on the autism spectrum. The Spears Family YMCA and Ragsdale Family YMCA, in collaboration with local autism groups, run a program for adults with autism and other communication disorders who may experience challenges in social interactions.
QUAD F is dedicated to developing friendships, motivating each other, having fun and promoting fitness and community engagement. Over the course of the program, participants will dine together and enjoy other activities, which may include movies, bowling, swimming and fitness classes.
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.
QUAD F at the Ragsdale YMCA was made possible through the financial support of the David and Donna Griffin Foundation.
QUAD F at the Spears YMCA was made possible through the financial support of the William A. Stern Foundation and a challenge grant from the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation.
