Grenier, Michelle; Kearns, Catherine
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v83 n4 p23-27 Apr 2012
The growing appeal and acceptance of disability sports within the general population makes them an attractive addition for any physical education program. When included in a general physical education program, these sports provide complementary skills to students while delivering a powerful message about what it means to be an athlete with a disability. This article presents a case study of the implementation of a disability sports curriculum in an elementary physical education program and its benefits. Suggestions are also provided on skill development, game modifications, and targeted learning outcomes that make disability sports accessible and beneficial to all students. (Contains 2 tables.)
