A Systematic Ecological Model for Adapting Physical Activities: Theoretical Foundations and Practical Examples
Hutzler, Yeshayahu
Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, v24 n4 p287-304 Oct 2007
This article proposes a theory- and practice-based model for adapting physical activities. The ecological frame of reference includes Dynamic and Action System Theory, World Health Organization International Classification of Function and Disability, and Adaptation Theory. A systematic model is presented addressing (a) the task objective, (b) task criteria, (c) limitation and enablement criteria, (d) performance errors, and (e) adaptation suggestions. Four individual case examples are described, referring to the conceptual model and depicting its use in various settings of physical activity, including physical education, rehabilitation, competition, and recreation. (Contains 3 figures and 4 tables.)
