Dieringer, Shannon Titus; Judge, Lawrence W.
Physical Educator, v72 n1 2015
Physical activity and extracurricular activity has become a topic of importance in the United States. The nation's government officials have brought to light the need for increased awareness, advocacy, and support of the participation of youth with disabilities in recreation and leisure activities (e.g., extracurricular and school-sanctioned sport). The Government Office of Accountability recently released a "Dear Colleague Letter" bringing awareness to the need to improve acceptance and accountability in including students with disabilities in extracurricular physical activities. The purpose of this article was to provide implementation strategies for inclusion of students with disabilities into physical education opportunities and extracurricular athletics.
