Unit development

Children playing Floor Lacrosse

Project Adapted came from the need for Nottingham Trent University to provide practical guidance for teacher training students on a specialist course to teach the learning disabled in the mid 1970s.

It was an era when physical education in the UK faced challenges of:

  • disabled learners accessing PE activities
  • the possibility for integration of disabled learners into mainstream education.

The project sought to develop established and new pragmatic ideas applicable to this area.
