Table Tennis Training in Ireland
The Table Training Program took place in Galway, Ireland, within the Erasmus+ project SPAUT. The program aimed to improve the table tennis skills and social behaviors of children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) through a training program tailored to the needs of individuals with ASD, as well as the use of an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) table tennis application.
Two coaches of table tennis and four children with ASD were involved in the program.
