MoovKids activities are especially suitable for children with special needs or learning difficulties.
The activities are accompanied by level appropriate teaching suggestions.
Most activities are suitable for wheelchair-bound or sedentary children.
The activities are simple, achievable and the equipment used is manageable.
Repetition of the MoovKids activities will create muscle memory, improve muscle tone and increase stamina.

Regular active participation will enhance cognitive and sensory processing.
Regular constructive movement is a beneficial and fun way to keep special needs children or adults busy.
Movement integrated regularly with academic or cognitive learning improves concentration and focus and the ability to learn.
Children with special needs need to move to improve!
With regular and consistent movement every child will improve both physically and academically.
The Moovkids activities can be done indoors or outdoors, in small or large areas. They can be implemented throughout the day and are ideal brain breaks for children who struggle to focus and concentrate.
The suggested progression levels, teaching adaptations, comprehensive guidelines and instructional videos enables parents and/or carers to successfully carry out the activities with a special needs child or adult.
Children who struggle in various areas and feel different to other children generally lack self-confidence and are not willing to join physical games and play with others. By improving their all round body coordination, not only does their physical self-confidence improve but their bodies are then physically prepared for the games and sports they wish to do.
For children with special needs, achieving each physical milestone brings happiness and smiles, builds self-esteem, concentration and so much more.
Our clients enjoyed participating in movement sessions where they did a wide variety of MoovKids activities. They were eager and motivated to actively participate in the activities. The activities using hoops, ropes, balls, beanbags etc. improves their balance, hand-eye coordination, and motoric skills. The directions given are clear and easy to follow. The participants are able to do the activities at their own pace and ability level.
We are very pleased with the MoovKids program and highly recommend it to customers with special needs!
