Adapted Physical Education Resources for Parents


    Adapted Physical Education Services


    Adapted physical education is an instructional service provided to students who are eligible for special education services and who demonstrate a need for modified or accommodated physical education services. Adapted PE is an individualized program of developmental activities, exercises, games and rhythms and sport that are aligned with the TEKS. The TEKS are modified or accommodated to meet the unique physical needs of the individual with a disability.
    Adapted PE is an active program of physical activity rather than a sedentary alternative program. The goal of adapted physical education is similar to the goal of physical education in general; i.e., to enhance the movement capabilities of students. Content of instruction typically includes activities necessary for lifetime leisure, recreation, and sport experiences to enhance physical fitness and wellness. Adapted physical education instruction is specified in an individualized education program (IEP) and shall meet the standards of the TEKS.
