With Summer here, it may be a great time to try some of these ideas and see if your child may enjoy any of these sports.
Every child needs exercise, but every parent knows that scheduling the recommended 60 minutes of moderate physical activity each day isn’t easy. The challenge is magnified when your child doesn’t like or struggles to participate in the group sports and activities most schools provide. Soccer, baseball, hockey and cheerleading aren’t for everyone. Kids who are easily distracted, uncoordinated, shy or don’t enjoy team environments may prefer one of these five ideas for fun and exercise that help to limit the anxiety that can result from forced group participation:
No Appointment Necessary
Weeknights 6 PM to 9 PM
Weekends 1 PM to 7 PM

Hello, Internet! Cole here. I’m finishing school as strongly as I can with what little willpower I still have, visiting the gym in my spare time, and generally trying to tune out my constant displeasure with the world. Nothing noteworthy has happened, so I’m going to answer some more silly questions because why not? After all, a whole three people commented on my last one, so this one should also do well, right? …whatever. Okay, here we go.
IEP ADVISORY SERVICES
Individualized Education Program (IEP) Advisory Services
If you’re the parent of a child with special health care needs, you know that your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) has a considerable impact on his or her future. However, the process to develop an IEP is complex, and the IEP itself is generally filled with many unfamiliar terms and statistics. It can be difficult as a parent to know how to participate most effectively in this very important process.
