The Town of Fuquay-Varina is proud to partner with Abilities Tennis Association of North Carolina and Going Full Circle of Fuquay-Varina to offer recreational tennis programming for children with intellectual disabilities (ID). Together, we hope to inspire and empower those with ID to get out, be active, and play! All levels of abilities are welcome! Fun drills, clinic format and free play. All participants must pre-register. Information about fall programming and coaching opportunities will be presented.
What is an Intellectual Disability?Intellectual disability (or ID) is a term used when a person has certain limitations in cognitive functioning and skills, including communication, social and self-care skills. According to the American Association of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, an individual has intellectual disability if he or she meets three criteria: 1. IQ is below 70-75 2. There are significant limitations in two or more adaptive areas (skills that are needed to live, work, and play in the community, such as communication or self-care) 3. The condition manifests itself before the age of 18. Anyone that has been diagnosed with an intellectual disability is welcome to play!
