Beth Hurley’s nine-year-old son Ryan is autistic. The disorder affects his social, developmental and self-care skills. While many children his age feel a sense of accomplishment on the sports field or in the school gym, Ryan’s mother says, he’s left out.
The family found geocaching about a year ago. They geocache under the name meandthekiddoz and already found more than 60 caches. Beth says geocaching offers Ryan an independent way to sense accomplishment, bond with his family and even lose weight.
Watch Ryan and his family hit the geocaching trail in the latest Lost & Found video.
