Therapy Ball

TSBVI is pleased to sponsor this unique half-day training for educators and family members!  The workshop will take place in the gymnasium of the Texas School for the Blind & Visually Impaired in Austin.  

DrumFIT  was started in schools as a simple, fun way to impact kid’s lives both physically and mentally. Recognizing the need for innovative, high-quality P.E. curriculum resources, DrumFIT launched its Play N’ Go Curriculum which led to DrumFIT being dubbed “Netflix for P.E.” DrumFIT’s streaming video curriculum reaches hundreds of thousands of students and educators every month, and is helping accomplish the DrumFIT mission: To Teach Students to LOVE Cardio Fitness for LIFE!

This program uses fitness balls and drumming in combination to get kids up and moving and having fun.  

Check out this great video demonstration about DrumFIT and visit the DrumFIT website.

We will host the DrumFIT training here on campus and invite APE and PE staff as well as COMS, TVIs, and family members to attend.
