This is the ideal opportunity for you to find out why it can be so beneficial to those who experience many conditions and just how to engage with this community.

The DILEMMA session will not just be teaching you what to do. You will learn how to:

  • Change your verbal and physical approach to suit the partisan’s condition

  • Decide which exercises, moves and practices are generally preferred

  • Ensure the environment suits the individual – especially in group activities

Calling all qualified PE teachers!

Survey for Quaified PE Teachers on Inclusion

Survey by Teesside University – An investigation into the inclusion of disabled children and young people in PE in England.

Calling all qualified PE teachers – Please spare 5 minutes to complete a survey on the inclusion of disabled children and young people in PE in England.

The aim of this study is to investigate the suitability of initial teacher training (ITT) for the inclusion of disabled children and young people in Physical Education (PE) in England (at both primary and secondary levels).

I have contacted Dr Tom Gibbons, Senior Lecturer in Sport & Exercise, Teesside University to expand on the barriers and obstacles preventing blind and partially sighted children taking part in activities in main stream schools.

Yesterday I attended the Visual Impairment, Sport and Physical Activity Workshop at the University of Central Lancashire based in Preston along with other universities, occupational therapists and national governing bodies of sport.

Happy to share the outcome of yesterday’s meeting, the group plan to meet again in 6 months’ time and apply for future grants.
