The Open Air Fit team offer sport clinics to suit everyone’s needs.
Sports training for a person who has special needs can undoubtedly be more challenging for both the client and the trainer. At Open Air Fit, our positive attitude means we approach the sessions asking ‘what can you do?’ not ‘what can’t you do?’ and combine this with existing knowledge of fitness, the specific disability and any exercise preferences the client may have.
We work with people of all ages and disabilities from children with learning difficulties through to adults with physical impairments. Sessions are carefully structured to improve the health and increase the physical activity level of people with unique needs and to develop motor control and physical activity skills.
In particular, we work extensively with children with Specific Learning Difficulties (including co-ordination disorders, ADHD, and Aspergers Syndrome) and develop playful outdoor activities to enhance children’s motor skills, learning and development.
And for parents and caregivers, there is no greater feeling than taking your child to do something a “typical” kid would do – and we very much look to also benefit parents by having their children learn physical activity skills they can later work on together as a family: after all exercise is important for the wellbeing of all people, regardless of age or ability!
These sessions can be arranged with parents directly, Occupational Therapists or Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators.
