Sport For The Disabled Kids


All kids desire to play and feel what it is like to be a wild swan, flapping its majestic wings. Perhaps thousands of disabled kids have to bury these dreams deep inside the recesses of their minds where no one can go and discover these lost dreams.

In order to make disabled kids feel normal and capable of  playing games and indulging in sports a number of  adaptive devices have been introduced by sport goods manufacturers. There are a number of events like school county championships and interstate disability sports celebrations meant for disabled children.

Usually Indoor games like chess and checkers are a favorite with disabled children.

The sports that disabled children can play can depends both on the level of disability they suffer from and the nature of the adaptive equipment in use. The safety of the disabled child is more of a concern than perfection in the game.

How comfortable is the child with the adaptive equipment and how easy they will find playing games with such equipment are questions which need to be addressed and answered.

To bring out the latent talent in disabled children, the government is funding various activities to make sports for the disabled more attractive and easy. School coaches are given special training to enable them to handle disabled children.
