Special Needs Tennis
Special Needs Tennis is designed to meet a range of special needs. Players may have Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Disabilities, Language-Based Disabilities or ADHD.* They may have narrow interests and difficulties carrying on a two-sided conversation or following directions immediately.
Our specialized Play-based curriculum encourages social interaction, basic athletic skills, hand-eye coordination, balance and, of course, a love of tennis. Every Special Needs Tennis class has an appropriate coach-to-student ratio. Children have the opportunity to form bonds with their coaches and with their fellow players. All sessions are supervised by highly trained and qualified coaches.
The Special Needs Tennis environment is both structured and flexible, with developmentally appropriate equipment that will help kids feel successful with every swing. Special Needs Tennis works in any play space—with or without courts.
*Special Needs Tennis is appropriate for children with the following diagnoses: Asperger’s, High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, PDD-NOS, Learning Disabilities, Learning Disorders and/or Non-Verbal Learning Disorders.
