Inclusive Fitness: No-Cost Strategies to Support Physical Activity for People with Intellectual Disabilities (ID)


Presented by Justin Hunsinger; Melissa Otterbein; Monica Forquer

Approximately twice as many people with intellectual disabilities (ID) are insufficiently active compared those without. Inclusive fitness professionals are the leaders needed to reverse this trend.

Learn from Special Olympics International about no-cost strategies to form community partnerships that improve the active participation of people with ID in gyms, what people with ID need to participate in fitness in inclusive atmospheres, and how to engage people with intellectual disabilities in your gym leadership.

Attendees will learn about universal design principles, communication skills for working with people with ID and how to use Special Olympics fitness assessment resources, as well as:

  • Establish a partnership with Special Olympics;
  • Engage people with ID in leadership opportunities at your gym;
  • Implement no-cost strategies to make your gym inclusive; and
  • Utilize Special Olympics resources and curricula to lead people with and without intellectual disabilities in fitness programming and to stay active outside of the gym.
