Supporting challenged athletes

 

Technical sports need a technical mind – the performer is required to take in and work with a wide variety of data. This is a challenge for all but becomes particularly difficult for those with certain limiting conditions. Two common such challenges are dyslexia and ADHD. Although often bright, such individuals face extra challenges coping with the volume and speed of data flow. Indeed, all athletes can suffer from such challenges due to time restrictions imposed by specific sports.

Grey Matters have worked with the athlete alone or in association with coaches, parents and educators to develop bespoke solutions that helps to meet and exceed these challenges. We use a combination of different IT and learning strategies to equip the athlete for autonomous performance.
