World Autism Awareness Day 2023: Creating opportunities on and off the pitch

Really good article on the ECB site detailing an innovative coding programme in the West Midlands designed to help children with Autism.

Evidence shows that neurodiverse children are typically less active than their peers, and in response to this and the ECB’s ambition to be the most inclusive sport, we launched our inclusive ‘schools’ strategy’ alongside charity partners Chance to Shine and the Lord’s Taverners in late 2022. This funded the delivery of cricket in an extra 200 SEND schools.
