Swim Team for Teens with Autism

A glimpse of what looks like an amazing documentary on The New York Times' Well blog. 
Team sports are a right of passage for many children, but kids with disabilities often can’t participate. A new documentary called “Swim Team” chronicles the Jersey Hammerheads, a swim team for children with autism.

“A lot of these kids don’t have friends. At one time or another, all of our kids have been ostracized,” says Michael McQuay, the Hammerheads’ coach. “For them to be part of a team is unbelievable.”
