Learn to create environments that help young children with disabilities develop their movement skills in natural settings while playing with typical peers.  These physical activities need only inexpensive equipment and small spaces, accommodate children of varying ages and abilities, can also be played by families at home, and are fun.

Participants will:

  • Describe developmentally appropriate, non-competitive and inclusive physical activities for preschoolers of all abilities
  • Explain how to lead these physical activities using inexpensive equipment and small spaces, to allow preschoolers the freedom to explore movement
  • Describe how to modify each physical activity to include children with a wide variety of developmental delays and disabilities alongside their typical peers
