Our Services

specific programmes based on your needs

Here at Active Kids Academy we provide a wide range of services for children with special needs and disabilities. We also provide training for those working with children through sport.

All of our services are designed specifically to meet the needs of the children engaging in our programs. Our classes are non-competitive and inclusive. The focus is on participation and enjoyment.

We can focus on all of the skills the the children need to develop and improve in a fun way. We can incorporate any tasks or exercises set by their physiotherapist and occupational therapist allowing the children to perform these exercises in a fun manner.

We love to find out about the children’s interests, hobbies and needs before we start working with them. This enables us to make our classes as appealing to the children as possible. We want the children to have fun, be proud of who they are and achieve beyond expectations. That’s why we aim to develop supportive, accepting communities where children can flourish and be celebrated.

We ensure that all of our classes are adaptable and suitable for all needs. Whilst our classes our structured, they offer plenty of opportunities for input from the children. We encourage the children to help us develop activities and create games, giving them a sense of ownership over the classes.

We incorporate a social skills section into our classes and some team activities to enhance the children’s skills. Also, we spend time teaching the children how to fail and to set goals in a safe, non judgemental environment.

Whilst the children believe they are coming for a fun class, behind it there is a lot of planning and programme design to ensure that the children reap as many benefits as possible from the time we spend together.
