ACEing Autism started in 2008 in Boston, MA, with 15 children. Organizers Richard Spurling and Dr. Shafali Jeste quickly realized there was a greater need. Now more than 500 children in 80 locations nationwide take part in the program. Head Penn is the official equipment supplier, providing tennis racquets and balls to the children during the sessions.
