Beverley
Go-Kids-Go: Independence through mobility – Wheelchair skills event
We teach skills such as coping with slopes and rough ground, back wheel balancing, road safety and emergency evacuation techniques. We also play games like wheelchair basketball and try out wheelchair dance. We bring extra chairs so family members can get involved and join in the games. The young people will need to be able to self-propel to gain fully from the workshop however we often have a mixed range of abilities and find that everyone gains some new skills from the workshops. The event is suitable for children as young as 2 years of age and young people up to the age of 21.
