PALAESTRA


PALAESTRA

PALAESTRA is a quarterly publication designed to be a single responsible source of valuable information for those interested in sport, physical education, and recreation involving individuals with disabilities. It is published in cooperation with the Adapted Physical Activity Council of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance; United States Paralympics, a division of the United States Olympic Committee; and the Education Committee of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association.

PALAESTRA's mission is threefold:

  • to enlighten parents in all aspects of physical activity, thus making them the best possible advocates for their children during IEP (Individual Education Plan) discussions with the school or community recreation staff;
  • to increase the knowledge base of professionals working with children or adults with disabilities, making them aware of the can-do possibilities of their clients; and
  • to help adult readers learn the value physical activity holds for their increased wellness.
