We are available to answer any questions you may have and support you along the way.  We can provide you with an Introduction template so you can introduce the Specialcise program to a Coach/Trainer or Gym. Just ask us, we’re here to assist you the best we can.  Getting children with Special Needs fit and active is our goal and we’re happy to help.
