Post by: NHU Community Friend on November 15, 2016, 02:15:08 PM
Check out this article about what activities are beneficial for certain special needs.
 Beneficial Activities for Kids with Special Needs (http://www.metrokids.com/MetroKids/January-2010/For-Children-with-Special-Needs-Activites-Build-Skills-and-Self-Esteem/) by Tom Livingston of Metrokids.

Beneficial after-school and weekend activities for children with disabilities can
build self-esteem, skills, friendships and a sense of belonging.

Interacting in a shared endeavor with other children can be especially rewarding.
MetroKids asked experts in several special needs areas to recommend appropriate
sports and recreation activities in different categories including ADHD,
 Aspergers syndrome, Communication disorders, and Intellectual and
Developmental Disorders.
