Parks and recreation services, YMCAs and other community organizations offer programs that are beneficial for youth with disabilities, but their programs are often underfunded and don't have the type of publicity necessary to reach the very people they are trying to serve. Parents like you are in a key position to work with these groups to help develop programs that can meet your child's needs.
*Consult with your physician before starting any exercise program.
