‘Back to Basics’

 Football and Basketball training programs starting October 2017

 

Maharat Learning Center’s Sports Academy in partnership with Al Areesh Club introduces football and basketball training programs for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), learning difficulties, cognitive challenges and other developmental delays.

Training sessions are conducted on weekdays after school at the Al Areesh Club, Dubai Festival City in a safe and fun learning environment. Students will develop their football/basketball skills through various creative activities to help improve a player’s general coordination, fitness, teamwork attitude, social skills, gross/fine motor skills and self-confidence. Our Back to Basics programs focus on the development of basic football/basketball skills as well as participation in games and activities, and most importantly having fun with sports!

Our Sports Academy programs are led by a qualified Sports Coach trained in ABA Therapy and students will have shadow support during the programs.
