OBJECTIVES

Our shared goal: a beneficial impact on the lives of young people with intellectual disability.

To promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation in, and equal access to, sport for all

WHAT WE DO

Our workgroup sets up sport clinics for young people with High-Functioning Autism and intellectual disability in a sporting environment.

Work will be implemented on the areas of affirmation and self-talk, arousal, anxiety and stress, confidence, consistency, focus and concentration, goal setting, motivation, team building, and cohesion.

ALIVE & KICKING

People affected by intellectual disability need to take charge of their lives through the development of initiative.

IMPLEMENTATION AREAS

Affirmation and self-talk, arousal, anxiety and stress, confidence, consistency, focus and concentration, goal setting, motivation, team building, and cohesion.

This program attempts to manifest that perceived competence, autonomy and relatedness influence intellectually disabled individuals’ level of intrinsic motivation (IM) in sports and in everyday life in general.

In the context of SDT, social-contextual supports of the basic psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness are considered essential to motivation and psychological growth in any domain (Ryan, 1995).
