    • Disability
      • Objectives:
      • Consider the types of disability that exist.
      • Look at ways in which disabled performers are able to be active participants.
      • Consider the measures taken to enable the disabled to participate as fully as possible.
    • Disability Disability is an area where social perceptions has been raised through policies of inclusion to ensure that all people are catered for.
      • Disability can be considered to exist in one of 4 categories:
      • Physical
      • Mental
      • Permanent
      • Temporary.
      • All the above will affect an individual’s ability to take part, but there are various ways in which these different disabilities can be catered for.
    • All sports can be adapted to cater for either general or specific abilities. All governing bodies make effort to make their sports accessible to all. The Paralympics are held every 4 years immediately after the Olympic Games. In 2008 there were 20 different events, which ranged from athletics through to equestrian events and 5 – aside and 7 – aside football. The IPC (international Paralympics committee) also organise many other competitions.
    • Adapted sports Adapted sports, such as wheelchair basketball, where the hoop heights are the same but some of the rules (such as travelling) are adapted.
    • Watch this video clip: - How has athletics adapted to allow Oscar to run? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-fbSHENjHc
    • Adapted equipment, such as footballs used by the blind and visually impaired, where there are ball-bearings in the small compartments within the ball so that it is auditable and its movements can be tracked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saDZFvKOOe0 Watch this video clip about the Football Blind World Cup
    • Other adapted equipment, such as specially designed and adapted wheelchairs, are now available, not only for basketball and athletics, but also fishing, hockey, tennis, rugby, exercise, yoga and dance.
      • Disability classifications exist for all the activities relating to the particular physical demands of that sport. For example, athletics uses a system of letters (T for track and F for field) and numbers, which identify the particular disability to make competition fair.
      • The numbers are as followed:
      • 11-13 = visual impaired
      • 31-38 = cerebral palsy
      • 41-46 = Amputees
      • 51-56 = wheelchair athletes
      • 40 = Dwarf athletes
    • Facilities
      • It is a legal requirement that all facilities cater fir the disabled in the following ways:
      • Access : doors and doorways have to be wide enough to allow wheelchair access and ramps must be provided/
      • Parking: disabled bays must be marked and make available.
      • Provision: lifts must allow access to upper floors, disabled toilets must be provided, and there should be specific activities, clubs or classes that are particularly suited to the disabled.
      • Key words:
      • Inclusion: a policy that no one should experience barriers to learning as a result of their disability, heritage, gender, special educational needs, ethnicity, social group, sexual orientation, race or culture.
      • Equestrian: related to horseback riding or horseback riders.
