A complete program for those with and without special needs
We are living in a time of extreme technological connectivity, yet the prevalence of people feeling lonely continues to rise. Those with intellectual disabilities tend to report a higher incidence of feeling lonely or socially isolated than their peers with disabilities.
Loneliness Has Health Implications. A recent study featured in the New York Times showed loneliness is associated with a reduced lifespan similar to someone who is a smoker. Loneliness is also linked with a greater risk of heart disease, dementia, anxiety and depression.
CLUB WELLNESS is a complete activity-rich program of fitness, nutrition and wellness training designed specifically for people with intellectual disabilities, and effective for all. This unique program builds a team culture of inclusion, support and encouragement in your setting.
Club Wellness, delivered in a Train-the-Trainer format, allows you to bring this unique and innovative program to your school or provider organization. Your staff needs no specialized background for this complete program, because we provide training for your staff.
VIRTUAL CLUB WELLNESS: During this time of social distancing, Club Wellness has proven to be successful when taught virtually. It's a great way to keep people connected, active and involved. Training your staff to teach Club Wellness virtually is now included as a portion of the Train the Trainer session.
SPECIFIC TO SCHOOLS: Club Wellness aligns with National Health and Physical Education Standards.
