Hello everyone, welcome to our Webquest about after-school care for children with special needs and those not in sports. You will come across some explanations about the topic. Every child needs someone that they can interact with, especially those with disabilities.
A child with a neurodevelopmental disability characterized by social, communication differences and behavioral atypicality is highly vulnerable to social exclusion. While federal legislation mandates that students with special needs have access to afterschool programs that take place on school grounds, the goal is not to put a strain on afterschool programs but rather to encourage programs to “make reasonable accommodations” for individuals with disabilities to integrate them into the program to the highest degree possible. Which adversely affects their mental health, development, and effective participation in education. Also, community programs and even those in the child welfare system do not meet their needs. There have been known to be cliques when it comes to children interacting. After this, you will know what is needed to devise an after-school program good luck!
Unfortunately, not all children have their needs met in their communities. Meeting their needs is vital. They require help coming from individuals who have their best interests at heart. Community activities come into play but are not always accomplished.
You will eradicate this gap by following these steps:
- Devise an afterschool program for children who do not participate in sports and the special needs individuals.
- Get permission from the people in the local school system. Set up a meeting with the School Board. Have a meeting to gather available volunteers. Send out an advertisement to teachers who are willing to volunteer their time after school for one hour and a half. Could do alternate and do different teachers Monday thru Thursday. (except holidays)
- Execute the program
There are also seven steps to implement the program. As you follow these steps, specific strategies for physical educators to detail the process for creating and sustaining after-school programs that provide opportunities for youth skill development will increase academic performance; the student will begin to have fun. Implementing this program will also serve as catalysts to break down “cliques” and stop bullying as the children build relationships with their peers. The program will also open up a place where children who are not active in sports experience equal participation.
This task will require time equity, but the feeling you get when doing something positive for a child will take precedence in your heart, mind, and spirit.

Title: Special needs and children who do not participate in sports After School Program.
Amount Requested: Program will cost time equity. It will require the individual to volunteer their time.
Proposed Start Date: September 5, 2021
Duration: 2021-2022 school year
The children will receive reinforcement and experience positive interaction with other children other than playing sports. The special needs individuals will also participate and have a chance to make healthy relationships. It will help the parents as well when it comes to traveling time for activities. The feeling of knowing that a child has had a positive interaction experience is imperative.
Some children do not have their needs met in their communities. They require individuals to have their best interest in heart to be there for them. Suppose they had a place to go after school where they can get positive interaction. It will be good for them and their parents, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
There are several steps to implementing an after-school program, and these steps are practical and not time-consuming. The youth.gov source states that “after school care is critical for a child’s overall development.” The only time the program will require this system is an hour and thirty minutes of the volunteer’s time Monday-Thursday after school.
The program will not only allow students who do not participate in sports and are special needs to have a place to interact, but they will have the potential to make long-lasting friendships. Some of these children have a hard time approaching individuals, but the after-school program will positively impact them and increase their skills. With good volunteers and strict rules that combat bullying of any kind, there will be instances when the students will breathe a sigh of relief. Some of the volunteers may even be mature students. They can be a huge example, and the children they are working with will realize that they matter and that they can be comfortable around other people.
This reason is why this program is so important. We cannot have another child go without positive influences in their lives. We cannot have another child experience bullying. And most of all, we cannot have another child feel like they do not belong. All of them are not interested in sports, and they do not have good interaction skills. This program will be their chance to have something extra to and It will help the volunteer, parents, and students emotionally, mentally, and physically.
I can also do something. I can be one of the volunteers to impute positive factors into these children. I can also be there to make sure that the program is implemented correctly. All of the questions that need answering shall be provided by me, and I, too, will have a chance to experience from my time equity the feeling of satisfaction that my program is working.
