Belmont Physical Therapy students recently developed and implemented a sports festival for children with disabilities. Students worked with “Empower Me” Day Camp to put on an afternoon of fun games and sporting activities for school-age children. Empower Me provides summer day camps, social and recreational activities throughout the school year for children with disabilities. The Physical Therapy students planned several fun activities that each had a specific therapeutic purpose. Activities included obstacle courses, parachute games, face painting and crafts, sensory-based activities and other childhood games adapted for children with disabilities.
