At Adapted we provide a safe and fun environment for children with physical, cognitive, communication and/or behavioral impairments to participate in modified gymnastic activities and to enhance socialization skills. The program utilizes gross motor activities that will enable children to develop and enhance flexibility, mobility, spatial orientation, and neuromuscular and motor skills. We also endeavor to facilitate each child’s self-esteem and social relationships with peers. Lastly, we offer encouragement and enthusiasm as we strive to improve the participants’ confidence and abilities.

Adapted Gymnastics also provides opportunities for students with an interest in health professions to gain valuable experience in working with children with varying abilities.
