Clubs offer fun and challenging activities as well as a sense of belonging. In addition to the clubs offered by schools, a wide variety of clubs are offered in communities. Consider volunteering in a club that interests your child. You'll be offering him support as well as building awareness of ways to include children with special needs.
Boys and girls enjoy and learn from scouting. Because of these organizations' teamwork approach, they are great options for many kids with special needs. Scout activities provide a blend of hands-on practice and book learning. Everyone wants those badges, so the motivation to read is heightened.
Skills clubs offer a good fit for children who have a very specific interest, such as horsemanship, martial arts, or homemaking skills. Like scouting, skills clubs offer hands-on activities and book study components. Skills clubs also include competition, which appeals to many kids with behavioral concerns.
