Parents gave positive feedback like how skateboarding had reduced hyperactivity and the improvement of sensory profile.

It was heartening for the volunteers to see the smile and excitement in these children who may have only started skateboarding.

I just don't understand why a professor X type character hasn't emerged to take these kids to a special school and train them on how to use their autism superpowers.

This is great! Wholesome content that portrays skateboarding in a positive light is much needed to counter the hatred that many average citizens feel towards skateboarders.

It does give a positive image for skateboarders.
