Although the mentally challenged face limitations, they continue to learn throughout their lives just like anyone else.
Although Down syndrome and certain birth defects can come with physical limitations, many mentally challenged adults are healthy and capable of playing almost any sport.
Basketball, soccer, baseball and football are all possibilities for mentally challenged adults.
Just as positively, physical activity benefits the mentally challenged as much as anyone else and leads to better health, higher energy and a happier outlook.
Just because a person is mentally challenged doesn't mean she is mentally incapable.
Every mentally challenged adult can be assessed for her effective mental age.
A 35-year-old adult with the mental age of a 10-year-old has the ability to play games appropriate for 10-year-olds.
Popular board games like Life and Junior Scrabble can be well within a mentally challenged adult's grasp.
In order for participants to succeed with such games, they need clear, simple instructions and demonstrations. It's important to have someone with good communication skills and patience to explain the game rules.
