    What is Adapted Physical Education?

    Adapted Physical Education is physical education which has been modified, so that it is as appropriate for the person with a disability as it is for a person without a disability.

    Federal law mandates that physical education be provided to students with disabilities and defines Physical Education as the development of:

    • physical and motor skills
    • fundamental motor skills and patterns (throwing, catching, walking, running, etc)
    • skills in aquatics, dance, and individual and group games and sports (including intramural and lifetime sports)
