The project “Fit Kids” main goal is to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in participation in sport. Partners developed many different outputs to increase the level of physical activity of children with special needs. All materials are gathered on the online platform so that all interested parties can learn and implement the in their organizations. To learn the materials we created buttons that enable participants to download all the developed materials to different devices and learn. The materials include: modular sport program, handbook of special needs descriptions, workshop training program (includes history of adapted sports in partner countries, descriptions of adapted sports and a training curriculum) and training program for teachers, trainers and volunteers.
In the first stages of the project we analysed the situation of children with special needs in regards to barriers to participation in sport activities. We conducted a survey research analysis and created policy recommendations for stakeholders. This work package also include a creation of a guide of best practices, where partners collected best practices from all partners countries. Below you can download both documents in English:
