Project Adapted is a research and development unit based at Nottingham Trent University’s Nottingham Institute of Education.
The project aims to provide a focal point in higher education for research, course development and consultancy related to providing practical support for adapted physical activities and sports.
We are especially involved in the design and development of basic adapted physical activities, games and sports equipment, for people and youngsters with severe physical, sensory and intellectual impairments.
About the unit
Project Adapted arose out of the need for practical guidance for teacher training students on a specialist course to teach the learning disabled in the mid 1970s at Nottingham Trent University.
Project Adapted started by developing a number of basic adapted games and activities as prototypes. Each of the games were developed with the assistance of students from Nottingham Trent University in conjunction with a number of organisations.
