Adapted physical education refers to the discipline that serves the physically, mentally, and socially challenged; the elderly; children; and those who experience difficulty in adapting to society. Meaning can be found in the fact that these people will develop the physical strength required to carry on with their lives and satisfy their needs for self-expression and physical activity, thus leading to increased social and emotional stability while the rehabilitation or stimulation of their physical motor functions enables them to grow more independent. Our Graduate School provides not only specialized physical education for the disabled, but adapted PE as well by modifying rules and methodologies in order to expand the participant base and include a greater number of people in traditional PE programs. Its aim is to offer physical education to the disabled which increases the likelihood of rehabilitation, provides opportunities for participation, strengthens solidarity with the non-disabled in addition to improving the motor functions of the disabled.
Based on pure physical education, we aim to establish the groundwork for practical studies through interdisciplinary education and interdisciplinary studies with other related disciplines so that we can improve the qualities of in-service and pre-service physical educators in the future sports field to contribute to social development.
