Adapted Physical Education

The Adapted Physical Education (APE) program provides exercise classes for individuals with a physical disability. Classes are available to those whose physical condition makes participation in traditional physical education classes inadvisable. Each student's exercise program is individualized and is based on his/her current skill level, fitness level, interests and personal physical objectives. APE provides an excellent way for students to increase stamina, strength and improve flexibility.

This site provides staff and students the opportunity to learn about many of the instructional support systems available to students with disabilities. There will be other occasions when you become involved in the process of providing accommodations for students such as the provision of classroom or lab assistants. Please contact the DSPS office so that we can support you in your efforts to provide access.
