Every child, regardless of disability or ability, should engage in physical activity. By engaging in physical activity children can increase skeletal development, increase heart and lung health, improve functional movements and be more social with peers. Exercise should be fun and engaging, whether modified or not, and provide an outlet for children with disabilities to discover their true potential. Having a disability should not be a reason for children not to engage in physical activity.
If you have any concerns about your child and exercise please contact an Accredited Exercise Physiologist who can guide you in development an appropriate exercise program.
