This has been AWESOME for my son. He not only has to work hard at a sport, but they make such a big deal out of the events and, if the kids make the finals, they get to stay overnight at a hotel and perform in front of a big stadium full of people. For an Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) kid this has been awesome. Different types of k ids are in the program. You don't have to be in a wheelchair (that's seperate) or have a low IQ. You can have cognitive deficits, such as Aspergers or any sort of disorder)--you just need to have a disability in some school setting. My son has met many Aspies in his travels and he usually ends up talking to the other kids, which is good for him. Just wanted to bring up this as an option for those who want their kids in sports, but can't imagine them being able to do it. My son is currently doing Cross Country. Next week he competes and gets to stay overnight at a hotel. The cost is FREE, even the hotel room. I can not tell you what it has done for my kid for him to be performing in front of an audience, meeting new kids, and working at a sport. They are very affirmative and most kids do well. Although there are kids with Downs Syndrome, there are kids like my son too. My son is equally comfortable and compassionate toward kids with challenges and with sympathetic NT kids. I wanted to let people know about this. My son is so proud of his ribbons and plaques. And he has gained a lot socially and it has helped with his anxiety over performing in front of people. We all have fun at his meets.
