In this conversation, Kwame La Bassiere interviews Dr. Giovanni Martinez, a clinical psychologist in Puerto Rico who works with children with autism. Dr. Martinez started the organization Surf4Dem, which uses surf therapy to help children with autism improve their social communication skills, sensory processing disorders, and muscular tone.

The therapy also has a positive impact on the families, as parents are encouraged to surf alongside their children. The program has been successful in providing unique therapeutic benefits and improving the overall well-being of the participants. Dr. Martinez explains the meaning behind the name Surf4Dem, which stands for Surf for the Development of Emotion and Motor Skills. The organization focuses on using surf therapy to help children with autism develop their social communication skills and improve their motor skills.

Giovanni emphasizes the importance of trying new and unconventional therapies for children with autism, as different approaches may have a significant impact on their development. He also discusses the potential benefits of medical tourism, where families from other places can come to Puerto Rico for a customized surf therapy program for their children.
