In the period 15-17 September, 2022, an international meeting of the consortium implementing the Sport for Every Child: Fit Kids project was held in Sassari, Italy. The initiative encourages social inclusion and equal opportunities and its main goal is to develop a modular based Physical Education methodology of sport activities, sport games and exercising for children and youngsters with mental and developmental disorders, illnesses and other disabilities. The project’s team is focused on the groups that have to overcome most obstacles in doing sports activities, sport games and exercising.

The developed methods are suitable for children with ADHD, bipolar, anxiety, trauma and stressor-related disorders, disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders, depressive disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, autism and low cognitive ability. The modular approach meets the needs of the individuals involved in the project and is structured to be used by teachers and parents of children with special needs.

The Fit Kids project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and is a joint partnership of 7 countries – Bulgaria, Slovenia, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Serbia and Turkey. The international meeting was attended by Joanna Dochevska – coordinator of the Bulgarian sports development association, partner in the project from Bulgaria.
