Coaching and Special Education
Sport at school – as part of the Physical and Health Education curriculum or extra-curricular athletics – provides many benefits to all students, including those with Special Education needs.
Adapting and modifying the sports program to suit the needs of individual student-athletes enables everyone to participate and provides exciting opportunities at school for all sorts of students.
Sport improves physical fitness and develops cognitive skills which can be transferred to the classroom and everyday life. It is also a chance to build social relation and boost self-esteem.
