This week on Townsquare Sunday we met surfing instructor Christopher Antao. His company, Gnome Surf of Fall River, conducts surfing camps throughout the summer. Now he's joining with other non-profit agencies to offer surfing camps to children on the autism spectrum free of charge. Antao says his program is open to all young people. In the past four seasons, he's provided instruction to dozens of children who are autistic. How does he make the connection? He explains the program and his techniques this week on Townsquare Sunday.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
