No Limitations No Barriers
- Ismael Salazar, Mireles Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation
Children with disabilities should be given every opportunity to succeed both physically and emotionally. This year, we chose to participate in the “You can do it – we all can” play. Our Adaptive Education students were given the support and encouragement needed to get them both physically active and emotionally supported. For this play, we gave our students with disabilities the opportunities to choose what they wanted to do in hopes to promote both physical participation and a sense of ownership in their physical education. During this implementation, we noticed how our AE students began to get excited about PE and ultimately started participating more throughout the year. It was a beautiful sight to witness how other students began to fully support our students with disabilities, not to mention how our AE students began to work past some personal barriers as well.
