Motor Activity Training Program (MATP)
The Motor Activity Training Program is designed to prepare athletes — including those with severe or profound intellectual disability and significant physical disabilities — for sport-specific activities appropriate for their ability levels.
“MATP has to fit in with everything that Special Olympics does, so that it’s not just a standalone program that focuses on physical development, but one that ensures athletes with profound disabilities are socially included in their communities,” said Dr Eleni Rossides, Board member of Special Olympics.
