Within adapted physical education (APE), there is a lack of knowledge regarding content and attitudes toward curricular domains, which can influence student learning. This study assessed APE teachers’ attitudes toward four curricular domains. Participants (n = 219) completed a modified version of the Attitudes Toward Curriculum in Physical Education inventory. Results indicated that the importance of all domains, but higher for social development and physical activity. Understanding the content taught in APE will help teacher educators create programs that will provide preservice teachers with the content knowledge and pedagogy skills to meet the needs of their students.
