Getting Physical: Ball Games for Children with Disabilities

Exercise is beneficial for people of all ages, no matter what condition they are suffering right now. But as a parent of a child with disabilities, you know that disabilities and exercise do not go hand in hand. What if we tell you that you are wrong?

Amazing Possibilities, HCS, a provider of Home Health Services in Great Plains Way, Bolingbrook, IL gives hope to children and parents alike who are suffering from a form of disability. In this blog, we would like to share with you some ball games to get your child physical no matter what his or her disability is.

1. Boccia ball

Is your child interested in soccer but finds it hard to play because of his or her condition? This game is the one for your child. The goal is to kick the ball while lying or sitting down. The children work as a team in order to move the ball from one person to another. In order to score, they need to work together to get the ball to their target area.

2. Goal ball

Can children who are visually impaired play a game of ball? Our Home Health Services in Great Plains Way, Bolingbrook, IL wants to let them get physical too and you know what, they can! Goal ball is one game that makes it possible. The ball itself is fashioned and designed so that it can produce noise as it is put in play. This is why the silence of the audience is greatly needed for this game to work.

This game is played on a basketball court and is composed of two teams. The goal here is to score the highest number of points through rolling the ball and letting it reach to the other side of the court. This sport is like basketball with a very realistic goal for the blind!

3. Sitting volleyball

Now that we have mentioned soccer and basketball and modified them to accommodate the special needs of children with disabilities, it is time to transform volleyball. With 6 players on each team, sitting volleyball is just like the sport played in national competition but with a twist as it requires the players to sit. The court and net is also adjusted so that the players can take part in this hard-hitting sport.

4. Music Ball

Still a game for a group of children, music ball is played when a ball is passed to another person while music is playing. If the music stops or if a bell rings, the children will pass it in the opposite direction. This is a great way to spend time with friends and even family. We encourage our patients to enjoy this game while we make Home Health Services in Great Plains Way, Bolingbrook, IL possible.
