PHYSICAL/LEARNING DISABILITIES IN OLDER PARTICIPANTS
Staying active and healthy is fundamental for older adults especially those with physical disabilities as mobility becomes difficult.
We provide a variety specialist services to support our participants such as group and 1-2-1 physical activities where we focus on light and accessible movements to help strengthen muscles and develop motor skills.
We also offer services such as:
- Mobility therapy
- Hip and Joint flexor exercise
Moreover, Begin2Sports focuses on providing programmes that are inclusive to those with physical and learning disabilities, specifically dyspraxia and dyslexia.
Dyspraxia affects around 5% of young children, 2% being affected severely and around 10% of the UK population have Dyslexia.
The difficulties that develop with dyspraxia and dyslexia continues into teenage and adult years. Dyslexia affect gross motor skills e.g running and balancing and fine motor skills e.g handwriting and tying shoelaces.
More examples of the effects of dyslexia and dyspraxia:
- Muscle Development
- Social Skills
Regular and consistent physical activity has been shown to be important in helping strength and maintain these motor skills and our goal is to bring awareness to the significance that physical activity has on adults with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia.
Our highly qualified coaches provide group or 1-2-1 physical activities where we create an engaging and safe environment for our participants to develop these motor coordination skills.
