Event
On Your Mark, Get Set, Play! Exploring AT for Living and Adapted Recreation
Type
Webinar
Description
Recreation and socialization are two important aspects for children in school as well as adults living in the community. However, for a person with a disability, participating in recreational and social activities might be difficult to achieve and often not even an option. The lack of participation by people with disabilities in recreational sports and activities can lead to ineffective coping mechanisms, depression, and even secondary health conditions. During this session, presenters will share recent research that sheds light on the gaps and needs of adaptive recreation for individuals with disabilities. Participants will learn about recreational activities that can be done within their own home or with a group. Discussion will center on the importance of recreation for people of all abilities as well as share examples and resources of adaptive sports, devices, and socialization opportunities that can make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities.
