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.
The project sought to develop established and new pragmatic ideas applicable to this area.
began in 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's history
Project Adapted started by developing a number of basic adapted games and activities as prototypes. In 1984 we then we produced a series of pamphlets to illustrate these innovations.
