Abstract

The presentation is on the Adapted Physical Activity course offered here at Western, as well as an in-depth discussion on a ten week physical activity program that was created for a specific individual. The course covered basic information regarding some of the most common disabilities. Half of the time in this class was spent at OSU participating in a program called IMPACT. This program provided each WOU student with a one-on-one opportunity to work with a child with a disability and encourage them to participate in physical activity. The project required for the class was centered around the student’s specific individual, and the process necessary to teach them the proper techniques to perform the crawl stroke in the pool. This program included models necessary to make modifications for the participant, as well as create achievable goals for the specific individual. A block plan was created to outline what each session would look like for the ten weeks. A detailed plan of one session was also provided. The block plan should reveal progression and show that by the end of the ten weeks the participant should have the skills necessary to perform the crawl stroke appropriately.
