In 2010, Philippe Manning started realizing a long-cherished wish. He developed a unique sports program for children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder, including Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, Classic Autism), ADHD and Down Syndrome.
Philippe Manning combines a specially developed tennis program with teaching of five universal skills: Joint attention, Motor development, Socio-emotional skills, Motivation, Participation.
With individual attention and team coaching, Philippe ensures that the sports program seamlessly adapts to the needs of children and adults, as a result they are able to enjoy movement and have fun playing sports in a constructive atmosphere.
The result is a successful sports and instructional program that is popular with children (their parents!) and adults. The success is partly due to a well thought out sports program and on the other hand to the personal approach, the enthusiasm, the passion and drive of Philippe. The sport program enhances the natural preference of children to move and make them skilled in several aspects.
Philippe Manning is from Montreal, where the program is now running successfully for several years. Besides a tennis program for children he now also developed a program for adults.
