KI 3190 - Adaptive Physical Activity


This course provides an understanding and application (in revised simulations) of the integration of individuals with varying disabilities, learning differences, and conditions in physical activities. Students will examine and analyze various mental and physical disabilities more often found in the general population, as well as those most commonly identified in children in school settings (grades K‐12). Special focus is placed on the planning process, goal setting, and modification of activities in fitness, recreation, physical education, and adaptive competitive sports, to accommodate varying disabilities and allow for participation by all individuals. These outcomes are achieved by a combination of theoretical discussion and a series of practical experiences in a gymnasium or outdoor setting. Prerequisites: KI 1110  or SM 1510 .  Additional prerequisite for Physical Education majors is ED 1030. (4 Credits)
