Tedesco Visits Children With Autism at All Par Golf Program at Valley Brook Golf Course



River Vale, NJ – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco last week visited children with autism who are participating in the All Par Program at the Valley Brook Golf Course this summer. 

The All Par Program is a county-run golf program for children with autism.  The program is an introduction to golf that emphasizes basic information and instruction. The fundamentals are presented by the instructors and reinforced by the teaching assistants in both a classroom setting and on the practice tee. The use of Snag golf equipment, large-face plastic clubs and tennis balls provides the first step in the learning process.

The instructors present the grip and stance for a putting stroke and practice these concepts on the practice tee. Targets, placed a short distance from the golfer, are used to convey the importance of distance control and alignment. Once these skills have had a chance to sink in, chipping is introduced. The full swing is only discussed after the development of the shorter swings of putting and chipping.
