Modifications for students in wheelchairs

  • 9 April 2021

I have a student who is in a wheelchair. Any thoughts of including modifications in the programs for students with disabilities? 

Hi @GretchenGetz

It is certainly something that has been asked before and that we would love to offer. As the ability to develop such a program requires a certain knowledge base and skill set, we are looking for aqualified and licensed professional who may be able to help us. We would love to find someone and have something in place for next school year, but that is dependent on our ability to find the right coach!

Best,

Alex


Thanks, Alex! PLT4M has been the best resource for our PE program!


Awesome to hear!!


Programs and videos designed around mostly band resistance routines may be beneficial for someone who is in a wheelchair. Also, I know that many HS students are virtual now. Resistance bands are an affordable alternative or classes to send home to virtual studetns. Even just a simple set of 2-4 bands would provide a great addition to the workouts.


Absolutely @Coachw96 ! We are actively exploring if this is something we could build out and offer in an Adaptive PE program next year!
