SCHOOLS AND INSTITUTIONS

Teambuiling and Sensory Exercise

Did you know that children with disabilities 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 improved self-sufficiency.

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

Children and adolescents with disabilities need challenges and physical activities, just like all other children. It is central to their development to offer them suitable sport activities rather than overprotect them.

We recommend:

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.
