Intro To Adaptive Sports For The VI/Blind Webinar
STRIVE4You would like to invite any individuals with a visual disability, professionals that currently or may work with someone VI/Blind, or anyone in the community interested in learning more about adaptive sports for people with disabilities to join us for an informative webinar introducing you to the world of adaptive recreation and sports. STRIVE4You is a 501C3 nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities and the communities where they live. To help foster a more inclusive society for all, STRIVE4You not only provides education, resources, and opportunities but also uses a peer-to-peer approach through programs and services. Some of these services include self-advocacy, disability awareness, mentoring, adaptive recreation, and safety education & self-defense! Through our ARISE (Adaptive Recreation Inspiring Success & Empowerment) program and our Veterans Healthy Tomorrow Initiative, we want to equip people with the proper knowledge and resources so they can lead a more active and healthy tomorrow.
These webinars will feature:
- Different types of adaptive sports equipment specifically for those who are VI/Blind.
- Techniques for adapting recreational activities and sports using the ARISE Access to Inclusion Plan (AAIP).
- Provide information for opportunities that people could potentially participate in with STRIVE4You and other agencies across the nation.
- And much more!
