   What is Adapted Physical Education?

Adapted Physical Education is physical education which has been adapted or modified, so that it is as appropriate for the person with a disability as it is for a person without a disability.

Federal law mandates that physical education be provided to students with disabilities and defines Physical Education as the development of:

physical and motor skills

fundamental motor skills and patterns (throwing, catching, walking, running, etc)

skills in aquatics, dance, and individual and group games and sports (including intramural and lifetime sports)

                 The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (1990) uses the term disability as a diagnostic category that qualifies students for special services. These categories include:

 

Autism

Deaf – Blindness 

Hearing impairment

Intellectual disability

Orthopedic impairment Serious emotional disturbance
Specific learning disability Speech or language impairment Traumatic brain injury
Visual impairment including blindness
