AllPlay Move for Health Professionals
About the Program
There are many benefits children can gain from being involved in movement activities. From formalised sport to dance to informal running around the park, movement and physical activity is linked to improved health outcomes for children with disabilities. These include learning important life skills, gaining the health benefits from regular exercise and connecting with others.
Health professionals play a key role in encouraging families and children with disabilities to get active and enjoy the many benefits dance has to offer. It’s time to start ‘prescribing’ physical activities for children with disabilities and developmental challenges! These resources will help you do this.
