In gym D-305 there were wheel chair sports, and in the front dance studio there were mats, tunnels, and other things for toddlers to play with. I was in the gym playin wheel chair sports for a lot of the day, and we played power soccer, wheelchair basketball, an obstacle course, and a little wheelchair whiffle ball. The wheelchair sports where a big hit, and the kids really loved playing power soccer. After a while of playing organized games we just had a free time and allowed parents and kids to play in the wheelchairs and everyone had a great time.
ABCD Day went really well and I'm glad I chose to participate in the event. It was a great experience, and I was able to work with kids with disabilities, which was a first for me. The ages ranged from around 3 or 4 all the way to teenagers, and even the adults got in the mix. I was thanked many times by parents, and they really appreciated us putting this event together.
This coming Sunday, APEM is hosting a Wellnss Day at Park Center, so we hope to have another successful event. I will be presenting wheelchair sports and helping out with a frisbee station. This event is for Cortland teachers, and we hope to have between 30-50 in attendance. The event starts at 11:00 and it is bound to be a great time.
