It can be challenging to get your child to participate in some regular games or activities, but that doesn’t mean it has to be challenging to help them get active in other ways. We’ve put together a list of different games you can play together, either at home or out and about, that are both super fun and help them get safely moving with confidence.
We have been careful to select activities that are suitable for a range of different physical disabilities. But it is important to remember that you know your child and thei level of mobility better than anyone, so you can still scale an activity however you want in order to suit your kid's individual needs.
The emphasis shouldn't be on things your child can't do, but everything they can do. The process of selecting an activity should be done together with your child. You can try to make the discussion the first part of the game itself; by talking about all the fun things you will be doing together.
Once you have chosen an activity or two, it can be helpful to set out some goals for your child, especially of it is something you plan on doing regularly. It can be something as simply as "having fin together as a family", but you can also help your child identify longer term goals as well if appropriate.
The guide consists of 15 different activities that is suitable for children with disabilities, and fun for the entire family:
