Physical education, specially designed if necessary, is a required component of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment for students with disabilities who receive special education services. Professionals and parents who understand and communicate the physical education requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) can advocate more effectively for children and school-based adapted physical education (APE) programs. This webinar will review IDEA physical education requirements for students with disabilities, discuss some relevant legal decisions and federal policy clarifications related to IDEA and physical education. Several strategies for effective advocacy of school-based APE programs will also be presented.
