Schools are essential settings to promote the healthy development of every student. Physical activity opportunities throughout the school day can engage students with disabilities in experiences that promote healthy active living, along with building a sense of belonging in the school setting.
The Disability-Centred Movement activities have been developed to:
- provide students with opportunities to acquire the skills and strategies needed to develop the competency to participate in a wide range of activities and sports for people of every ability;
- enhance an educator’s capacity to approach Health & Physical Education (H&PE) programming with every student in mind, and;
- model how to integrate curriculum-connected activities into lesson planning that highlights sports and activities for people of varying disabilities and abilities in action.
