Hi DS has came home with a letter saying he's overweight. I have a meeting with the school nurse, dietician etc to see what can be done. I have also had a message from the school nurse for me to get my thinking cap on. (I thought it was them giving me advice !!) Apart from swimming what do you think I should suggest. DS is 8 years old functioning 12-18 months, is down syndrome, limited mobility, SPD, seizures, severe challenging behaviour, severe learning disability, heart condition etc etc.. Also we keep him on a low fat diet due to his heart condition but don't know what he eats at school. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for that moondog. DS doesn't eat bread so feel like I would be struggling to do packed lunches but will have a look at what I would give. If he had his way it would be a tin of beans. The physio and podiatrist won't allow him on a trampoline due to his severe hypotonia and feet.
Horse riding for the disabled I think its RDA but other threads about it here just from a few days ago. Also my local leisure centre does one to one gymnastics for disabled children. Not much help but the only ideas I could come up with.
