MATP trains participants in aquatics, dexterity (track & field), electric/manual wheelchair (track & field), kicking (soccer) mobility (gymnastics), striking (softball), and team sports. Some programs refer to these events as “Developmental Games/Events”.
MATP can be incorporated through schools, group homes, residential facilities, and other community-based setting as needed. Local programs can utilize physical therapists, occupational therapists, therapeutic recreation providers and/or adaptive physical education instructors to identify and develop their MATP program.
