Disabilities development

To the young children attending the Center for Children with Special Needs it was a simple game of basketball. In reality it was an exercise in which the children are learning many things. First the children were asked to select a specific coloured ball, then walk up a steep ramp and place the ball in the basket. Up and down the ramp without holding the railings they are learning balance, and placing the ball in the basket they are using their motor stills. Each child receives lots of encouragement from the staff and accompanying family members and although it is an exercise in learning, the children see it as a lot of fun.
