Many of us are caught up in the daily grind. To relax, we often sweat out the stress by playing sports. Sports not only help us unwind individually; it also fosters interaction and pulls the whole family together with shared participation. Persons with disability need not be left out. They can participate in many games too. Using the Tree Principle, games are made more disability friendly!
This is a basic principle for adapting activities to be inclusive
You can adapt popular games like football, badminton and basketball for persons with disabilities. On the other hand, you can also engage in games designed for players with disabilities.
Boccia is such a game, a competitive sport played in the Paralympic Games. Practiced by people with cerebral palsy or related neurological disorders, Boccia is usually played in pairs or in teams of three. Players throw coloured balls as close as possible to a white target ball. The team that scores the most balls near the target wins.
Persons with disability need not sit on the sidelines. Picking up a new sport gets the whole family moving – together. After all, the family that plays together, stays together.
