Exercise and sport are important for everyone, but especially it is important for athletes with developmental disabilities. These individuals are genetically predisposed to have higher health risks than the normal population. Such risks that can be reduced with exercise.
In addition to the benefits for the athlete, coaches can also get a lot from interaction with them. The experience of adapting coaching techniques with different athletes as well making a difference.
The purpose of this website is to educate and inform coaches and parents on the benefits of teaching and coaching athletes with disabilities and how to interact with this population. I hope this information helps and can make a change in life for both coaches and athletes.
