It has always been important for people with disabilities to be able to access physical activity and be supported in this. Now more then ever, we need to have creative ways for everyone to be able to keep active while having to stay at home. Here are some ideas for Adapted Activities that can be done at home.
Parasport Home Workout
Parasport have teamed up with Kris Saunders-Stowe, who is a qualified fitness instructor, to provide home workout guides to stretching and improving mobility. These require no equipment and are ideal for those who have not taken part in activity for a while or who have a disability.
Special Olympics Fitness Movies
Special Olympics work to tackle negative stigmas and provide opportunities of activity for those with Intellectual Disabilities. Their Fitness Movies are great to follow along with at home to keep yourself active.
Limb Power Exercise Videos
Limb Power's Exercise Videos are an amazing resource to get individuals with limb impairments involved in physical activity. Their videos are split up to help you focus on one thing at a time, such as Warm Ups, Circuit Training and Dynamic Exercises.
Teaching Yoga To Children With Autism
The National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) have a very useful video on YouTube that can show you how to engage children with Autism in Yoga and start to build their fitness levels.
