Kids benefit from sports in a variety of ways, from staying healthy and active to learning teamwork and self-discipline. We believe children, adolescents and teens with disabilities deserve a chance to compete like any other young athlete.
Collaborative Team Approach
Our Adaptive Sports Program is led by a multidisciplinary team that is dedicated to helping children and teens with disabilities find a sport they love and can play safely. Through the collaboration of our Sports Medicine, Orthotics and Prosthetics and Rehabilitation programs, our team works together to provide children with disabilities access to and information about adaptive sports.
Members of our Orthotics and Prosthetics team can design and assist with the technology needed for adaptive sports. Our Rehabilitation Services and Sports Medicine teams can help children with varying disabilities find the right adaptive sport and get them in the game. Adaptive sports are an integral part of our Inpatient and Day Rehabilitation programs.
We want to make it easy to find a sport these athletes enjoy. To do so, we work closely with our collaborating organizations that are already planning and hosting events.
