Gifted and Talented Disability Project

E-mail Print

The research presented in this report represents work undertaken to specifically support a wider project focusing on gifted and talented (G&T) disabled pupils in physical education and sport. Fifteen Specialist Sports Colleges, twenty-four young disabled people and five parents of G&T disabled pupils participated in this research. From the fifteen participating Specialist Sports Colleges nine case studies of current practice supporting G&T young disabled people were developed. The findings generated from this research can be considered in relation to the four interrelated dimensions: schools, interventions, young disabled people and parents.

The gifted and talented (G&T) in physical education (PE) and sport strand is a key component of the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) PE, school sport and club links (PESSCL) strategy. The main aim of G&T in PE and sport in PESSCL is to establish pathways which co-ordinate the development of, and the demands on, talented (and potentially talented) young sports people in order that academic and sporting potential can be maximised. Within the G&T in PE and sport programme there are a number of different sub-projects which aim, in different ways, to provide support to young people who are considered or identified as G&T in PE and sport. The G&T disability dimension of this PESSCL strand reflects a commitment and concern to ensure young disabled people are considered and included within the broader G&T framework. The research presented in this report represents work undertaken to specifically support this dimension of the G&T strand.
