for children with disabilities
I am working for the Council Bluffs, IA. YMCA trying to incorporate youth sports for disabled children. There has yet to be a program developed for such youth in our area and I am reaching out to everyone who may be able to provide any information to me. This information would be very substantial in aiding me with providing a quality program for this area and our disabled youth. If you, or anyone you may know are able to provide me with such information, I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Here's a start. Tim Erson has experience working with children with physical disabilities. You can find his book Courageous Pacers and contact information on our resource page.
I would also suggest contacting Ron Vederman of the Special Olympics.
Here is the Web site for disabled athletes.
Please let me know if you find what you are looking for. Here's one more contact person. Ron Boemker of USATF also has worked with athletic programs for people with disabiliites.
Feel free to email the kid's editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
