  • Blowing in the Wind… Exploring Windsports as the Next Generation of
           Adaptive Sports and Recreation (Part II: Sailing on Land and Water)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cari E. Autry, David P. Loy
      Abstract: Advances in technology are increasing the depth and breadth of adventure-based windsports available in air, water, and land to individuals with disabilities. This is the second article of a two-part series on windsports and will include sailing on land, as well as on water, for those individuals seeking adaptive recreational and competitive participation. The history and science of sailing is first reviewed. Practical adaptations, techniques, personal experiences, equipment, and resources are then provided for practitioners and participants with physical disabilities. The power of connecting to nature and the wind through sailing has never been so accessible.

  • Assessing Physical Activity Patterns of Children with Autism Spectrum
           Disorder During Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy: A Pilot Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Josiah Johnson
      Abstract: Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) tend to be less physically active and are provided less opportunities to be physically active than their typically developing peers. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a common form of treatment for children with ASD. ABA uses both structured and unstructured play activities during therapy sessions. Free play and structured play during ABA therapy can help children with ASD accumulate recommended daily physical activity. Twelve children ages 3 to 6 with ASD who were receiving ABA therapy at a university-based clinic were recruited to participate in the study. Participants wore an Actigraph xGT3X-BT activity monitor during eight different 90-minute ABA therapy sessions. Cut points for exercise intensity were established using the Butte Vector Magnitude preschool formula. Participants accumulated an average of 45 minutes of physical activity during their ABA therapy sessions and approximately 15 minutes of moderate and vigorous physical activity. Accelerometers are a practical way to monitor physical activity during ABA sessions and Children with ASD can accumulate approximately 25% of recommended physical activity during 90 minute ABA therapy sessions.

  • Satisfaction of Para Surfers on Classification: A Survey Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maureen Johnson, Heather David, Mohan Ganessan
      Abstract: A new evidence-informed classification structure following the Paralympic classification code was recently developed and implemented at two para surfing competitions. The purpose of this study was to understand the agreement and satisfaction levels of this novel classification structure among para surfers. Pre- and post-surveys were conducted in September 2019 and March 2020 at two international competitions before the COVID-19 pandemic. Surfers (n=131) met inclusion criteria of being older than 18 years old, completed classification, and surfed at least twice in their sport class. Pre-surveys (n=79) were conducted after classification and before surfing and post-surveys (n=98) were conducted after surfing twice in their sport class. Agreement and satisfaction levels were measured using a 4-point Likert scales. Results demonstrated high agreement and high levels of satisfaction (95%-100%) with this para surfing classification. No significant difference was found between the pre- and post-survey scores except in one sport class, Para Surfing Stand 2, that showed a significant difference in the requirement to be classified. Findings suggest para surfers widely accepted this new classification structure immediately after classification and after competing at least twice in their sport class.

  • Students with Williams Syndrome in Recess

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kathryn Bates, MacKenzie Pigg, Matthew D. Lucas, Savannah S. McCkenny, Kaitlyn E. Hahn
      Abstract: Williams syndrome is a disorder that affects the development of a child in a variety of manners, including physical and cognitive developmental delays. Due to the severity of the delays and the physical attributes, children with Williams syndrome are almost always diagnosed before the age of 4 (Huang et al., 2002, Nicholson & Hockey, 1993). However, students with Williams syndrome can fl ourish in inclusive classrooms with appropriate adaptations for their needs. Unfortunately, a study found that half of parents of children with Williams syndrome described getting their child appropriate accommodations and modifi cations at school as a “fi ght,” but none of the parents regretted the decision to have their child in an inclusive mainstream classroom (Self, 2010). The purpose of this manuscript is to provide educators, including special education coordinators and principals with ideas for promoting engagement and inclusion at recess for children with Williams syndrome. Studies have shown that students are more successful when they have recess and get to engage in physical activities (Lucas et al., 2020, Pellegrini & Bohn-gettler, 2013). Due to the physical and cognitive delays associated with Williams syndrome, many of the children fi nd it hard to engage during recess (Self, 2010). The authors will provide examples of easy modifi cations to common games played at recess with the goal of increasing the inclusion and developmental growth of children, socially and physically, with Williams syndrome in this setting.

  • Design and Implementation of an Adapted Soccer Program for Adults with
           Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Danielle Lang, Emily Munn, Mary Grayson Nix, Sheri Brock, Melissa Pangelinan
      Abstract: The most popular sport globally is soccer (Barak et al., 2019; Stolen et al., 2005). Even in short bouts of play, soccer can increase physical activity and overall health (Stolen et al., 2005). Unfortunately, many individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) encounter barriers that prevent their participation in sports and contribute to lower physical activity (Martin, 2013). The Unified Soccer Program through Special Olympics enables many individuals with IDD to participate in soccer, but players need to have basic skills (e.g., kicking a stationary or moving ball, trapping, dribble, etc.) and intermediate skills (e.g., positions, rules, interacting with teammates, etc.) for meaningful participation (Barak et al., 2019; Baran et al., 2013). Unfortunately, many individuals with IDD may not possess or have opportunities to develop these soccer skills, especially if they have transitioned out of school and can no longer access physical education and other school-based programming. Thus, an adapted soccer program was developed to teach fundamental soccer skills to adults with IDD. Here, we describe the basic curriculum for the adapted soccer program and behavioral supports developed to enhance learning and participation. Examples are also provided of individual modifications that were implemented to facilitate success for program participants with varying levels of communication, intellectual abilities, and physical abilities.

  • The Physical Activity Barriers Questionnaire for Youth with Visual
           Impairment (PABQVI): A User Guide

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ellen Armstrong, Lauren J. Lieberman, Jeffrey Martin, E. Whitney G. Moore, Erin Snapp, Staci Mannella
      Abstract: The Physical Activity Barriers Questionnaire for Children and Youth with Visual Impairments (PABQ-VI) was originally developed to help teachers, coaches, and researchers to identify (and address) barriers that prevent young people with a visual impairment (VI) from participating in physical activity (PA). Previous studies have tested the validity, reliability and feasibility of the 42-item PABQ-VI, which recently prompted a reduction of scale length to produce a more user-friendly, 23-item scale (The PABQ-VI short version). The purpose of this article is to disseminate ready-to-administer copies of the PABQ-VI (short and long versions), complete with administration and scoring guidelines which were not previously accessible.

  • Beneficial Effects of Access to a Disability Sports Facility on Mental and
           Physical Health of Patrons

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joy Cabador, Mike Cottingham, Alyson Galanga
      Abstract: Given complex health conditions, people with disabilities would greatly benefit from receiving the proper tools to actively maintain health and wellness (Duarte Brito et al., 2016). Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic caused temporary closures of several U.S. public facilities, therefore creating an environment of complete absence of adaptive-designated recreational facilities. The purpose of this study was to establish the impact of an adaptive-specific facility on the physical and mental health of patrons who utilize the facility by comparing results of an open-facility vs. closed-facility. This study took place at an adaptive-designated recreational facility in a metropolitan, urban area in the Southern, US. Researchers surveyed 60 patrons with physical disabilities and impairments, who participated in structured sport programming, activity classes, or utilized the center in any capacity. Tests showed the mental health median differences between facility-closed and facility-open were statistically significant improvements, and the difference in physical health scores between the two facility status categories to be statistically significant improvements.
