Aims and objectives

ST4ALL aims to enhance the training skills of sports trainers when working with youth with a spectrum of disabilities. Attention to both physical and psychological aspects of their involvement in sport activities and their therapeutic aspects will be explored. Even though barriers were predominantly environmental and facilitators were personal, the experienced barriers and facilitators depended on age and type of disability. When advising people about sports participation, not just the age and disability type should be considered, but also environmental and societal barriers.

Target groups

Direct target:

  • sport youth leaders and workers that are organising sports activities as part of leisure and recreational activities within (inclusive) youth and sports organisations.
  • current active sports / physical education trainers in special education/inclusive/mainstream schools
  • family members that want to also undertake sport activities outside school with their children with disabilities, and that embrace the abilities of their children, instead of focusing on the disability (based on positive psychology)
