  • Blowing in the Wind… Exploring Windsports as the Next Generation of
           Adaptive Sports and Recreation (Part I: Kiting and Gliding)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David P. Loy, Carl E. Autry, Jessica Piacenza, Nick Piacenza
      Abstract: New advances in technology are promoting the participation of windsport activities as the newest brand of adaptive adventure sports available to individuals with disabilities. This article is Part I of a two-part series and introduces windsports that facilitate and empower independence through flight in the air including kiting, kiteboarding, hang gliding, and paragliding. Practical adaptations, techniques, personal experiences, equipment, and resources are provided for practitioners and participants. Connecting with nature and the power of the wind has never been so available to individuals with disabilities.

  • “Patrick”: The Road Not Taken

      Authors: Bill Mokin
      Abstract: This paper describes a physical education teacher’s methods and strategies for teaching elementary students who have autism and other disabilities. It focuses on one particular student who had intellectual and motor deficits and describes how the teacher used proximity, observation, relationship-building, collaboration and trial-error-modification to provide the student with an enriching physical education program. Numerous examples of lessons, activities and interactions underscore the importance of continually exploring different approaches and possible solutions to challenges posed by one’s students.

  • The Use of Aquatic Environment for Children with Disabilities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anna Ogonowska-Slodownik
      Abstract: The aquatic environment provides a series of hydrostatic and hydrodynamic characteristics that make exercise feasible for children with disabilities, who may not be able to perform movements against gravity when out of the water. An aquatic program should include learning to move in water and basic swimming skills, to keep the children safe and allow them to participate in recreational activities outside of therapy. In addition, before starting, it is important to consider safety and assess the degree of assistance needed from the moment the children prepares for classes in the locker room to the moment they leave the swimming pool building. Working in an aquatic environment requires special attention in terms of the applied support. With appropriate support, children can comfortably and effectively interact with parents and guardians, the environment and their peers. Many scientific studies confirm that the aquatic environment has positive effects for children with disabilities.

  • Injury and Illness Surveillance During the 2019 Department of Defense
           Warrior Games

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Robert Lystrup, Chad Hulsopple, Jeffrey Leggit, Jeremiah "Jake" Mills, Timothy Hansen
      Abstract: The 2019 Department of Defense Warrior Games is an adaptive, multi-sport event for wounded service members from the United States and international partners. The purpose of this study was to describe the injury/ illness outcomes of the 2019 DoD Warrior Games. Using a descriptive epidemiological study design, 295 wounded warrior (WW) athletes were followed over the 15-day course of the Warrior Games. Treatment team members recorded all encounters, injury or illness characterization, and the treatment provided. Results from June 16 to June 30, 2019 found that 107 medical encounters were recorded and entered into a database. Injuries accounted for 64% and illnesses 36% of encounters. Athlete days were calculated by multiplying the number of athletes by the total number of days for the warrior games. Thus the total number of athlete days was 295 athletes x 15 days = 4,425 athlete days. The incident rate of injuries was 15.6 per 1,000 athlete days. The incident rate of illness was 8.6 per 1000 athlete days. The most common injury was a low back strain, and the most common illness was heat exhaustion. Integrative medicine treatments such as acupuncture, osteopathic manipulative therapy, massage, and Gua Sha (a form of skin scraping) were the most common treatment modalities (26%). This event is the second time a surveillance system has been used to track injury patterns and the associated medical utilization at the Department of Defense Warrior Games. This surveillance data provides another useful benchmark in planning for future events.

  • Adapted Physical Education Teachers Prior Training and Current Use of
           Action Research to Monitor Student Progress

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Adams, Melissa Bittner, Barry Lavay, Lisa Silliman-French
      Abstract: Action research was first identified by Lewin (1946) as the continuous process of planning, action, observation, and reflection. The purposes of this study were to: (a) identify APE teachers in the United States who have previously taken a course that includes specific information on action research and the opportunities that were provided, (b) identify the type and level of training APE teachers believed they received within their teacher preparation program on action research, and (c) identify the level of support APE teachers perceive they receive from their school and districts in monitoring their student(s) progress. A 51-question online survey was designed to focus on action research by APE teachers. Participants reported receiving different components of action research within undergraduate and graduate programs. However, there is still a high percentage of teachers monitoring their students’ progress with a perceived lack of support from their school district.

  • Contact Theory as the Theoretical Basis of the Paralympic Skill Lab: A
           Measurement of Implementation Fidelity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cathy McKay, Jung Yeon Park, Justin Haegele
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore contact theory as the theoretical basis of the university level Paralympic School Lab (PSL) disability awareness program. This fidelity of implementation study utilized a survey to measure contact theory as a single construct, seeking to control and explain the manner in which the PSL satisfied the four components of contact theory. Participants were 154 university students who took part in the PSL. Analysis included a chi-square goodness-offit test, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and Mc-Donald’s omega. Results determined that the PSL program supported the four theoretical components of contact theory, with statistically significant differences in student responses across all four indicators (p < .001). Results also determined that the four indicators of the instrument measured a single construct (two indicators significant at the p < .01 level, the remaining two indicators significant at the p ≤ .001 level), thus determining strong construct validity. This study offers a replication and validation, specifically exploring university students, that the PSL satisfied the four components of contact theory.

  • Utilizing Self- Determination Theory to Promote Physical Activity in
           Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Martin Block, Diane Whaley, Moira Johnson, Joann Judge
      Abstract: Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often experience an array of challenges when it comes to participation in physical activity (PA). As studies have shown children and adolescents to be less active than their typically developing peers, it is necessary for future research to explore innovative ideas and instructional strategies to help increase levels of participation in PA to this population. This article provides an overview of the self-determination theory (SDT) and explores practical strategies for parents, practitioners, and related-service providers to support participation in PA to individuals with ASD.
