    My son has Aspergers and has recently become the goalie of his soccer team. He went from the kid who thought no one likes him to a crucial part of the team dynamics, and it has increased his overall confidence as well.

    My son is a late bloomer and is much smaller than other boys his age. He looked up to his brother who was a varsity wrestler and decided to give wrestling a try. Since in wrestling, you pair off by weight, he was always matched with kids similar in size and thus, was able to develop his athletic ability. His confidence and athleticism have gone up exponentially!

    My son who has autisum plays for Special Olympics in Blair County PA. He was self taught when he was asked to play and 2 players on the team at the time (still there) helped him out they took him to play pick up games and also to play so they could teach him, he now does this with other kids, both on the team and off he is looking to take the classes so he can become a coach for the team or so he can start a nother team for our county. so he can give back.

    My youngest brother, now a sophomore, was diagnosed with a rare mental disorder (PANDAS) when he was fairly young. The medicine he needed to take ended up making him fairly chubby &, since you wouldn't know there was anything wrong, kids made fun of him. As he got older, he learned more about his disorder & sought out ways to teach others about it, even when a kid claiming to have the same disorder was arrested for making bombs to attack the high school (interview with my mom & brother here: http://tinyurl.com/zmfbr97). He joined football & wrestling in middle school, is ridiculously smart, & is crazy about all things band. Finally feeling confident with himself he started running & just a few weeks ago ran his first half marathon. Wrestling & running (along with his pursuits in music) has shown him that he is capable of anything he sets his mind to. This kid never ceases to amaze & inspire me in every way imaginable.

    Both my nieces played softball and it taught them team work and leadership. We supported them by going to their games and cheering them on.

    Our son has been playing ice hockey for five years. We've been to just about every ice rink in southern California and some in northern as well. We support him because he loves it and it's his goal to play hockey in college.

    My nieces are really into gymnastics like I was.

    I think all kids who participate in sports benefit .. hopefully supported by good coaches and parents/family who know the value of team work and don't focus so much on "the win".
