Physical Education for Students with Special Needs - 11/09/2012

There are many opportunities for students with special needs to be included in the school setting. The classroom is just one of the many facets of school life where activities can be adapted or modified to include all students.

On The Inclusive Class Podcast this week, Nicole and Terri will talk to Matt Schinelli. Matt is an expert on adapting physical education for people with various abilities.
