Pickens County Adaptive Physical Education

What is Adaptive Physical Education?

Adapted Physical Education is physical education which has been adapted or modified, so that it is as appropriate for the person with a disability as it is for a person without a disability.

Federal law mandates that physical education be provided to students with disabilities and defines Physical Education as the development of:

  • physical and motor skills
  • fundamental motor skills and patterns (throwing, catching, walking, running, etc)
  • skills in aquatics, dance, and individual and group games and sports (including intramural and lifetime sports)

While I am officially housed at Pickens High,  I am an itinerant teacher and it can be  challenging to contact me by phone, but please leave a message at your child's school or the high school and I will return your call as soon as possible.
