Taking part in sport and exercise can help us to keep fit, feel well, meet new people, cope with our worries, sleep better and lose weight. "Enjoying Sport and Exercise" will help people with learning and communication difficulties to choose what activity they would like to do and shows them how to find out what is available to them locally. Most leisure centres have many sports and exercise classes which can be adapted to include people with special needs. "Enjoying Sport and Exercise" tells the story of three people who want to take up a sport and are supported to do so. Jasmine is a wheelchair user who is delighted to find she can play badminton while her mum takes up Tai Chi; Charlie, who is overweight, discovers dog walking and cricket; James is a runner and with training fulfills his ambition to run a marathon. Supporting text at the back of the book includes background information on the benefits of taking exercise, extensive guidance for carers on helping to get someone started and an outline of the different activities and types of sports club available. There is also a suggested storyline and recommended helpful organisations and further written resources.
In the "Books Beyond Words" series the story is told through pictures only. The books are for adults with learning disabilities, but are useful for anyone with communication difficulties. Additional information as text, plus guidance on using the books, is also given.
