Tennis Program for Children with Special Needs
According to the US Census Bureau, over 2.8 million children in the US have a type of disability. Research has shown that sports can benefit children with special needs. Sports can help the child be active, increase the child’s self-image and self-esteem, improve social skills and improve the quality of life in general. It leads to a physical improvement (hand-eye coordination, motor skills), but also has a positive influence on cognitive functioning and mental health.
