Kids with special needs often need occupational therapy, and old-school gymnastics classes can be a great supplement. All that tumbling and bouncing around is called proprioceptive feedback in OT terms, and it helps kids regulate their bodies and minds. LA has a great selection of fully equipped gymnasiums.
Recent research has shown that the discipline and teaching style of martial arts mirrors many professional behavioral strategies used on disabled kids. They also get exercise and learn the concept of individual victory, which fosters self-confidence.
Other activities for special needs include: HORSEBACK RIDING, SWIMMING, SPECIAL TEAM SPORTS
