Classes for children with additional needs


We provide fun fitness classes for children with additional needs in their school, ASD Unit, their service, online, one to one, at home or small group sessions. These classes are designed specifically for children with special needs to ensure that we meet their individual requirements. Our classes are fun, active and focus on developing and improving the skills of the children participating. We also incorporate mental health skills into all of our classes, encouraging the children to apply these skills in all areas of their lives. We use a whole range of games, activities, sports, obstacle courses, stories, music and props to engage the children and ensure that they enjoy the classes. Our activities encourage them to work on things such as decision making, communication and listening. We always consult with parents and teachers beforehand to find out what the children’s abilities and interests are so as we can make sure that the classes are more appealing to them. If your child is attending occupational therapy and/or physiotherapy, we will work with you to make sure that any skills they need to improve are incorporated into class so as they can develop these skills in a fun manner.
