The Motor Activity Training Programme is part of the Special Olympics, and is designed for students who are unable to participate in official sports competitions due to their functional abilities. It is designed to prepare out students, including those with severe or profound disabilities and significant physical disabilities, for sport-specific activities appropriate for their ability and need. 

 

Key skills focused on are:

  • Gross motor skills
  • Fine motor skills
  • Kicking skills
  • Throwing skills

The Programme is usually done over 6-10 weeks, ending in a Challenge Event where staff, parents, governors, and students come together to celebrate everyone's achievements throughout recent participation in the programme.
