Abstract

The increasing number of homeschooled students and their need for quality physical education indicates a potential to establish a university-based program for students with disabilities who are homeschooled. Children with disabilities have a prevalence to be inactive and have the potential to be overweight or obese. In addition, children who are homeschool may not be participating in regular physical activity. This article describes a homeschool adapted physical education program for children with disabilities at the University of New Mexico.
