Thirty children with autism registered for the class sponsored by the D’amor Foundation in May. In July, D’amor Foundation sponsored 20 more children with autism, making the total number of registered children 50.
The foundation can sponsor more children and is currently holding an open registration period. Children and young adults 3 years old and up are welcome to register.
Their teacher is grandmaster Francisco Loureda who holds an 8th Dan and has been teaching tae kwon do for over 35 years. Under his training his students have won multiple gold medals in various divisions in the US National and International Championships, US Open and Jr. Pan Am Games.
The D’amor Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Maria Montalvo, the mother of a child with Autism. She found that therapies, such as, art, music and interaction with horses and dolphins were out of reach for most families because they are not covered by health insurance. The foundation’s goal is to help families cope with Autism and Sensorial Integration Disorder by making resources, educational tools and sensory integration therapies readily available.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
