Professor Nora Shields, Clinical and Community Practice (Allied Health, Northern Health) presenting on:
Increasing participation in exercise among youth with disability.
Participation has been described as the ‘ultimate’ health outcome. Participation in physical activity and exercise is particularly important for the physical and social-emotional development and health of youth with disability. Youth with disability are at high risk of developing chronic health conditions and of social isolation. They participate less frequently in sport and active physical recreation than their typically developing peers. This presentation will consider the importance of facilitating participation in physical activity, exercise and sport for youth with disability.
Pam Kappelides, Lecturer, La Trobe Business School, Department of Department of Management, Sport and Tourism:
Barriers and facilitators of sport participation for people with disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
Participation in sport has significant benefits for individuals and communities in terms of health and social cohesion. The presentation will identify the barriers and facilitators to participation in sport of people with intellectual disability from culturally and linguistically diverse groups (CALD).
