Physical therapy is one of 7 health disciplines in the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes program that will offer screenings during the Special Olympics Fall Classic.

FUNfitness consists of taking Special Olympics athletes through a standardized physical therapy screening for flexibility, endurance, strength, and balance. These are basic tests that can be performed by any PT or PTA. Stations are set up for each test and we work in groups at each station. The athletes are educated on exercises to help them with any deficits we find during the screening.
