Count me in: A guide to inclusive physical activity, sport and leisure for children with a disability

E-mail Print

In “Count Me In” you will find valuable information on the inclusion of children and youngsters with a disability into mainstream physical activity, sports and leisure.

Although there is a general tendency in Europe to include children with a disability in general education, they are often excluded from participation in physical education, sports and leisure. Especially for this group it is extremely important they get all opportunities for an equal start in all aspects of life.

With the project “Sports and Physical Activity for Persons with a Disability – Awareness, Understanding and Action”, a network of universities from 17 European countries aims to endorse full inclusion of children and youngsters with a disability in all aspects of society through physical activity and sports.

“Count Me In” will introduce you to basic theories, useful suggestions and strategies relating to inclusive physical activity. This book is not a manual that will tell you exactly how to solve each problem or overcome one specific obstacle. Instead, you should use it as a practical guidebook, which may help you to find your own, tailor-made, solutions for problems you encounter.
