Ball Games for Disabled Children

Ball games for disabled children not only help to improve overall strength and agility, but also enhance hand-eye coordination and gross motor skills. According to a study conducted in Italy and cited by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation, throwing, catching, passing and rolling a ball improves the disabled child's muscle response time. This site provides ideas for adapting four types of games, as well as links to other games and sports for children of all ablities.
