Adapted Physical Education

Adapted Physical Education is physical education which has been adapted or modified, so that it is as appropriate for the person with a disability as it is for a person without a disability.-APENS (Adapted Physical Education National Standards)

Federal law mandates that physical education be provided to students with disabilities and defines Physical Education as the development of:

  • physical and motor skills
  • fundamental motor skills and patterns (throwing, catching, walking, running, etc)
  • skills in aquatics, dance, and individual and group games and sports (including intramural and lifetime sports)                                                                                     

The following are the services I provide.

  • Planning services

  • Prescription/Placement: The IEP
  • Teaching/Counseling/Coaching
  • Evaluation of Services
