How Schools Can Adapt PE For Disabled Students

My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I live with a disability called Spina Bifida and have more physical challenges than most people. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for as long as I can remember and makes us all seem inspirational or depressed. I am on a mission to break all the stigma surrounding disability to help you learn the truth.

    Honestly it depends on what the student needs. Unfortunately, most schools are understaffed or underpaid and many more often than not have little knowledge about the resources available to accommodate students with special needs. The best way to improve adaptive PE right now is through advocacy, especially self advocacy and education. Educating yourself about it and then writing to spread the knowledge is great course of action. Keep going. Keep empowering yourself. What is out there for adaptive PE? Walkers? Lowered Basketball goals? Hand grips? Adaptive weight equipment? Lifts?

      Yes, your right every disabled person has different needs! My school was just so bad with disabled students by not including them if they couldn’t participate it hurt me to watch. I do realize that there are some schools that may be better than mine was which hopefully they are but if not all we can do is educate to help them improve their classrooms.
