Special Needs Programming
We also offer targeted programming for groups such as those for Asperger syndrome, autism, Down syndrome, the hearing impaired, and other special needs. Using tennis as an incentive, we capture the attention, interest, and potential of the children who take part in the program. The level of the tennis and life skills curricula is tailored to the needs and cognitive abilities, motor and verbal skills of the students. This programming includes instructors who have undergone specific training for working with special needs children.
We utilize the QuickStart format which uses specialized equipment, shorter court dimensions, and modified scoring that is all tailored to a participant’s ability.
Instruction is offered at our Center at 4842 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19129 or at your site.
Programming at the center includes a free half-hour in the library, classroom, computer lab, or kitchen.
