Special Needs Program
character, integrity, champions
Along with being a great way to get moving, learning gymnastics can help improve eye-hand coordination, motor skills and self-confidence, along with providing a unique way to interact socially with other kids. These skills can be particularly helpful for kids with a variety of special needs, many of whom often do better with individual sports that allow flexibility and personal expression.
In gymnastics not only is the brain constantly working in connection with the body as the child becomes physically stronger, but by integrating conceptual themes such as start/stop and lead/follow, apart /together, positive reinforcement, and various approaches to problem solving and social integration we are also able to encompass so many positive components for children with disabilities.
