Roll With Us!

My students need 2 sets of Sonic Scooters of Six Colors to creatively improve their fitness levels.

Roll with us! Teaching Adapted Physical Education encompasses a variety of challenges. My class contains students who have various disabilities and handicaps, such as autism, Downs Syndrome, traumatic brain injury, mental delays, and visual handicaps. For my students without the use of their legs, scooter boards make them feel like rockstars! My Adapted Physical Education class is full of inspiring young students with unique needs for movement activities.

Seeing a student with minimal use of their legs glide across the floor on a scooter board is a treat! My students' unique disabilities affect them in many ways and my goal is to plan lessons and activities that will benefit them in all of their needs. One area that presents difficulty for my students is gross motor skills. Gross motor skills are used every day when walking, running, climbing, jumping and moving about in the school. This is an area of deficiency for a majority of my students, especially those with physical disabilities, autism and mental retardation. Creating a safe and enjoyable environment for my students to learn and practice their skills is an integral part of my program. I try to find fun and motivating ways to develop these skills for my students, adapting and modifying activities in order to maintain their fitness is my goal! Creating an environment where my special education students can increase their upper body strength and enjoy themselves is priceless!

Scooter boards are a fun and innovative strategy towards improving cardiovascular fitness as well as increase muscle strength in our students with special needs.

Your donation will help take my students one step closer to becoming independent, successful, healthier special athletes. I need to teach my special students that fitness can be fun for them. The addition of the scooter boards will be a huge benefit in my quest to reach this goal!
