The Whole Person

The Whole Person

The Whole Person’s (TWP) Adaptive Sports Program is working with adaptive sports programs across the metro in order to provide diverse and inclusive play opportunities at competitive and recreational levels for people with disabilities living in the greater Kansas City area.

By working with participants to overcome physical and cognitive challenges in a supportive environment, TWP's programs show participants their possibilities and assists them to reach their fullest potential, enriching and transforming their lives through sport.

TWP feels that through adaptive sports, participants have the opportunity to meet positive role models, increase socialization skills, improve self-confidence, self-worth, physical fitness, decrease anxiety and depression, have less health risks, develop life-long skills and friendships.


The Blindness Low Vision Experience Activities

The Whole Person’s Blindness Low Vision Experience program encourages individuals to enjoy opportunities to achieve greater independence and access to the community through physical and outdoor activities, art and cultural events and other experiences.

Examples of activities include Stretching Without Looking (flexibility and strength class), Bowling Blind (accessible bowling), Out and About with Canines and Canes (conquer your fear of buses), downhill skiing and tandem bicycling. Meets on different dates and times depending on activities.

TWP creates accessible documents for all our programs to support participants who are blind or have low vision.
