Adaptive Physical Education
Adaptive physical education is physical education which has been adapted or modified, so that it is appropriate for a student with a disability. Adaptive physical education develops the fundamental motor skills and patterns such as throwing, catching, walking, and running. In adaptive physical education class students can be at different skill levels. Being in an environment with a small group or even one on one service each student can spend the time they need to make strides in improving the basic fundamental motor skills. The class is slow-paced so that each student’s needs are met by the adaptive physical education teacher.
Our Adaptive PE teacher can contribute to the IEP and the IEP team meeting by writing PELs and goals. He will work in collaboration with your PE teacher to agree upon gym space and time. Itinerant services are available on a fee for service basis to schools within Midwestern Intermediate Unit.
