AIR is proud to present At Bat for Autism. The program has several parts:


Education:

AIR staff conducted 25 autism awareness sessions at Citizens Bank Park, reaching over 3000 staff members.

Preparation:

AIR worked with Theraplay to create Baseball Stories.

Practice:

AIR brought families to Citizens Bank Park to attend an amateur game. Phillies staff set up the entrance as they would for a Phillies game. Aramark opened a concession stand and provided gluten free options. Clinical volunteers supported families.

Supported Experiences:

Lastly, AIR is bringing families and clinicians to Phillies games throughout the season.

The Impact of AIR:

The Phillies have hosted an Autism Awareness Night for years. Our goal is to expand that night to the season.

With your support, we are hoping to measure outcomes of this project and to create a standard that we can disseminate to baseball teams everywhere.
