Recent years have seen a growing appreciation of the benefits that full and active participation in sport and recreation can bring to people with disabilities. Equally, the contribution they can make to many different sports, and at all levels, is now realized by most people. This module allows students to fully engage in developments and processes leading to the increased integration into society of people with disabilities. It will identify and evaluate the physical, emotional, psychological and economic barriers that they can encounter when attempting to participate in sport and recreation activities and evaluate policies aimed at improving their access to, and participation in, sport and recreation activities.
