Introducing an exciting new service at Inclusive Sport SA

Inclusive Sport SA is excited to announce the launch of a new Sports Therapy (Positive Behaviour) program. The new service aims to improve the quality of life and self-esteem of participants through the inclusion of sports and fitness based activities into their life. The service is available to young people with a disability aged between 6-18 years who live at home with their family in the Adelaide metropolitan area and are experiencing challenging behaviours. The program may assist in:

  • Minimising the impact of challenging behaviour on home, education and sporting environments in order to increase access to community based activities
  • Accessing mainstream sporting activities
  • Facilitating the learning of game based rules and social rules, as well as acceptance of loss, being a good sport
  • Expanding social networks for participants and their carers through sporting links and social media

New addition to the Inclusive Sport SA team, Sports Therapist Natalie Montgomery, will work closely with parents and carers to develop a positive behaviour support plan that addresses behaviours of concern and aims to improve quality of life for the young person. Natalie, whose employment was announced last week (full story HERE), is a certified practising speech pathologist and positive behaviour support practitioner who has worked in the disability sector for 16 years. A flyer containing information on the Sports Therapy service will be sent to registered Inclusive Sport SA members via post in the coming weeks.
