The sport program is adapted, fun, innovative and has a positive impact on kids and teens.
Proset Special Needs Sport offers an adapted sport activity to schools and community organizations, who like to excel their Special Needs students into physical activity and learn about a healthy lifestyle.
In 2010, Philippe Manning started realizing a long-cherished wish. He developed a unique sports program for children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder, including Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, Classic Autism), ADHD and Down Syndrome.
The method combines sport with the teaching of universal skills
Philippe Manning combines a specially developed tennis program which includes teaching five universal skills: Joint attention, Motor development, Socio-emotional skills, Motivation, Participation.
With individual attention and team coaching, Philippe ensures that the sports program seamlessly adapts to the needs of children and adults. As a result they are able to enjoy movement and have fun playing sports in a constructive atmosphere. A successful program that is popular with children.
The result is a successful sports and instructional program that is popular with children (their parents!) and adults. The success is partly due to a well thought out sports program and on the other part is due to the personal approach, enthusiasm, passion and drive of Philippe. The sports program enhances the natural preference of children to move and become skilled in several aspects.
What started as a program mainly catered to Autism, previously known as Proset Autism, has now grown into a more diverse adapted program called Proset Tennis, inclusive sport. We are offering adapted tennis programs with the help of specialized therapists, so we can support you and your child in a positive sport experience.
“I like to challenge the kids with different games so I can engage their minds in addition to gross and fine motor skills. Tennis also helps kids focus, helps with hand-eye coordination and making eye contact. I often just let the kids play and work together and if we get to tennis, we get to tennis”
At Proset Autism we believe sport education promotes physical and social growth. We partner with organizations who share our core values. The benefit for students is extremely important. Find out more by contacting us!

We are offering the opportunity to our teens and young adults, who have Special Needs and have been enrolled in our program as a student, to work for Proset Autism. They are an asset as assistant instructors to our programs. It is teaching them leadership skills, social skills, accountability and a lot of self confidence. They know exactly how your little one feels and behaves the way they do. Our assistant instructors are an example for us and our students. Find out how to apply by contacting Philippe.
