Author(s): Dr. JB Dheesha
Abstract:
Physical education is an educational programme which is related to the physical development of the human body. It is one of the main components in the school curriculum helps students develop physical fitness, discipline and confidence. Students with disabilities are facing difficulties in participating sports and games. Adapted physical education is about meeting the unique needs of individuals with disabilities in physical activities. Adapted physical education deals with modifications in procedure, instruction, task, equipment and environment related to physical activities. The objective of this article is to find out the current scenario of physical educational programmes available for persons with disabilities in India. Studies reveal that students with disabilities are partially included in the physical activities conducted in schools. The reasons may be due to lack of awareness among physical education teachers about adaptation, inadequate infrastructure and school environment.
