Special Needs Gymnastics
This class is formulated for children with special needs who want to learn gymnastics in a fun, safe, stimulating environment. This includes children with autism, Asperger Syndrome, PDD, communication disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and more. Teaching gymnastics helps all children not only physically, but also in cognitive and self-esteem development. As each child grows more comfortable with each movement and piece of equipment, they also grow more confident in themselves. Participating in team-oriented exercises also helps to show each child how valuable they truly are, as well as helps to expand their communication comfort zones.
Some events and exercises covered in Special Needs Class include:
- Fun Warmup
- Obstacle Course
- Balance Beam
- Tumble Track
- Rope Swing
- Basic Vault
Note: Parents do not participate in Special Needs Classes. Child must be mature enough to participate independently.
We know that all children are different, and it is important for each child to have their own unique instruction. We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our Special Needs Gymnastics Classes.
