Moving Forward with Disability Health Education Innovation
Educational systems recognize disability and necessary accommodations within a legal, procedural context. Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are established with inclusive environments. However, the programs are plagued by false positives as well as human variation in physical and psychological development. Furthermore, emphases on school-based protocols incrementalize education, thereby inhibiting individual learning flexibility, especially with respect to alternative physical education programs. Innovation and overall system buy-in to the urgency for access to sport and universal access to inclusive exercise require a shift in social/organizational leadership and systems thinking.
