Sport Empowers Disabled Youth
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: Dec 31, 2017
With SEDY (Sports Enabling Disabled Youth) we would like to contribute to the overall goal to structurally raise physical activity of disabled children by increasing their participation in adapted physical activities (APA). We are convinced that this increased participation will benefit the disabled children due to the positive contribution of sport to the social, emotional and physical development of children and youth with disabilities. Pleasure, improvement of skills and success experiences are powerful tools for a sustainable sports participation.The the objectives of the SEDY project are: 1. To develop an inventory of the current and desired situation regarding all elements mentioned in figure 1 for disabled children in the partner countries. 2. To develop tools to measure APA supply and demand 3. To exchange best practices of one or several aspects of the SEDY Tool 4. To implement and evaluate pilots targeting the improvement the SEDY Tool for deployment in each country 5. To disseminate project results (e.g. SEDY tool, articles, educational materials, conference proceedings) on a free website.
