While the benefits of interscholastic adapted sport programming are clear, how to realize that goal often isn’t. Local adoption can be a complicated process, often requiring years of coalition building, effective policy, and development work. Once this groundwork has been laid, the implementation phases can be just as intricate.
AAASP assists national, state, and local educational agencies with research in developing a framework for phased adoption. This structured approach is then coupled with the AAASP comprehensive training program, which allows administrators, coaches and officials to acquire the knowledge they need to be successful. The result is managed adoption while ensuring a standard of excellence.
AAASP was founded 20 years ago and has developed proven and successful program strategies to provide competitive interscholastic adapted team sport competition for students with physical disabilities.
