Supporting Wheelchair users with Physical Activity - Wheelpower

Wheelpower have put together some great resources to support wheelchair users during physical activity. These can be used both in the school setting and home...with a bit of creative imagination and substituting equipment for everyday home items. These can be downloaded and saved. I love the use of current socially acceptable terminology.

These factsheets have been designed to support teachers and coaches to include wheelchair users within their PE lessons or sporting sessions. They provide ideas on how to run an inclusive sports session where disabled and non-disabled participants can take part side-by-side.
