- Educate Yourself
Understand the benefits of participation in physical activity and sport for all persons with a disability
Advocate that a disability is not a barrier to participation – while barriers do exist, you can play a role in letting educators, recreation staff, and other people in your child’s life understand that the disability is not the barrier – but sometimes attitudes, the built environment, equipment are.
Focus on what your child CAN do – consider possibilities and share your passion/information/recommendations with colleagues, families etc.
With an open mind, some effort and creativity, there are plenty of ways to get ALL kids active! Encourage an “Active for Life” lifestyle for both your child and your family!
