Narrative

Program is designed to enhance perceptual-motor, gross motor, sport, aquatic and leisure skills as well as social development of children and youth with disabilities, ages 18 months to 18 years. Fifty-five children attend the program in two eight week sessions during the fall semester and the spring semester each academic year. The clinic is held at the John J. Kelly gymnasium on the campus of Bridgewater State College. The clinic uses the olympic size swimming pool, two gymnasiums, an early childhood intervention center and a physical fitness training room.

The aim of the clinic program is to improve the "total development" of children with disabilities by enhancing vital physical, motor, and aquatic skills and patterns. In addition, the program stresses the improvement of children's self-esteem by strengthening emotional-social aspects of their personalities through successful involvement in play, recreation, and sport activities.
