SCHOOLS AND INSTITUTIONS

Teambuiling and Sense-Training

Did you know that disabled children who do sports will do better later in life in terms of education, work and independence?

The same holds true for adults with disabilities. Generally, sport and physical activity lead to increased happiness, confidence and self-sufficiency.

Nevertheless, children with disabilities often face difficulties when participating in regular sports in schools and institutions. Worst case scenario, they end up as spectators rather than participants.

Children and adolescents with disabilities have, as all other children, a need for challenges and physical activities. It is therefore extremely important for their development to offer them suitable sports activities rather than overprotect them.

We recommend:

Boccia

A precision sport that can be played by everyone, including children with very severe disabilities.

Great for inclusion and interaction with non-disabled children.

Audible balls and masks

A game of blind football is the perfect activity for the blind and visually impaired as well as their surroundings! Alternatively, goalball and torball are also great games that use audible balls.

Try showdown as well; a fun and fast-paced game which is played mainly by the blind and visually impaired. Showdown is similar to air hockey and table tennis, but it still has its own unique identity.

For integration of students with visual impairment, we recommend ball games with audible balls and face masks or blind sports glasses.

Then, all the students are equal, and the visually impaired students kan assert themselves on equal footing with their classmates.
