For many people, it is easy to exercise and play sport - all they have to do is to choose what they want to do and go for it! For others, it might not be so easy. They might have a physical disability, be dealing with the effects of a disease or be handling an emotional problem.
Whatever the obstacle, there are ways to overcome it. With a few changes to rules, equipment and lifestyle, and some help from family, friends or professionals, everyone come have fun and keep fit.
Overcoming Obstacles to Physical Activity will show you how some special children have learnt to overcome their particular obstacles.
Health and Understanding is a literacy-based series and interactive whiteboard program that helps teachers with these health issues during the last three years of primary school. The series provides teachers and students with the opportunity to explore a range of health topics that are involved in, and required for, a healthy lifestyle.
Written by experienced children’s authors including Hazel Edwards, Goldie Alexander, Alan Horsfield and Wendy St Germain, Health and Understanding is endorsed by the Centre for Hormone Research, a joint department of the Royal Children’s Hospital and Murdoch Children's Research Institute.
