Addressing Inclusion in Higher Education Physical Activity Programs
Allar, Ishonté; Baek, Jun-Hyung; Taliaferro, Andrea
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v85 n9 p36-41 2014
The number of students with disabilities pursuing higher education has increased in the past decade. However, there is little information as to whether or not college basic instruction programs (CBIPs) are providing appropriate physical activity courses for individuals with disabilities. Those who teach CBIPs may have limited background or training in adapted physical education, which can cause difficulties in knowing how to make the appropriate modifications or accommodations for students with disabilities. Thus, the purpose of this article is to provide several suggestions for college/university physical activity program instructors on how to modify activities and roles for college students with disabilities using the sport education curriculum model based on the national guidelines for higher education physical activity programs.
