Adapted Physical Education

This modified program of developmental activities, games, sports, and rhythms is designed to provide each student with opportunities to develop organic vigor, muscular strength and endurance within the limits of the individual’s abilities. The skills taught in all adapted classes depend on the individual’s abilities and on medical advice.
