Motor Activities Training Program (MATP)


Coordinator: Gene Luoma, gluoma@verizon.net
Assistant: Bobby Dietrick

The Motor Activity Training Program (MATP) provides participation in Special Olympics for individuals with intellectual disabilities and disabilities requiring the greatest assistance and support. The program is provided at Cedar Lane School during the school year.  It emphasizes training and participation rather than competition.  The training is conducted during the school year by physical and occupational therapists, physical educators, classroom teachers and paraprofessionals while working on the movement goals of each student.  Mobility, fine motor, aquatics and use of adapted equipment is emphasized.  Participants utilize whatever skills they have with whatever equipment is needed with whatever assistance is needed.

A culminating Challenge Day, is held each year to highlight each participant’s personal best.
