Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities Minor

The minor in Adapted Physical Activity is open to students regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, or disability. Adaptations for individuals that cannot lift heavy objects, cannot enter swim programs with members of the opposite sex present, and any other differences will be accommodated. Several prerequisites which will lead to a more successful completion of this minor include:

  • the ability to communicate in front of small groups
  • the ability to physically assist people with disabilities who cannot move themselves
  • the ability to sustain a level of fitness in order to “keep up” with clients who have run away
  • the physical strength to defend oneself and others from injurious behavior outbursts of a client
