PHED 5000 - Sport and Recreation for Individuals with Disabilities

Hours: 4
This course is designed to investigate recreation and sports organizations that serve individuals with disabilities as well as the practical application of principles underlying the provision of services. The course will focus on individual populations and the respective barriers to participation, the process of program planning and resources development that alter these limitations, and the practical experience of application of a particular plan. Topics to be explored include the role of the United States Olympic Committee, Committee on Sports for the Disabled, classification of athletes for competition, role of the National Governing Bodies in promoting sports, and ways people with disabilities can access sports & non-competitive opportunities. Attention will also be devoted to a study of successful community and institutional programs.
