Abstract

Children with intellectual disabilities have a greater risk for not getting the U.S. HHS recommended daily physical activity. Many schools and sport programs do not offer opportunities for them to participate in. Why is this? What modifications are necessary? How do you determine the skill level of the participant? What are any other challenges that may arise? In EXS 444, the goal was to create a training program specific to a participant in the IMPACT program. Working one on one with the participant, making observations, and utilizing motivation and behavior techniques a 10 week basketball practice program was designed. This presentation will show methods, reasoning behind, and how to make an inclusive exercise program.
