Summer scheduling can often be difficult for students with disabilities. Some prefer routine and changing class times or formats can be distressing. This month we talk about ways to make scheduling changes less stressful for your adaptive students.

Don’t miss our article on Martial Artists with Spina Bifida. Paul Brailler from Ohio and Paralymic Skier, Betsy Hurley are two top martial artists that were born with Spina Bifida.

If you are confused by the term “disabilities”, you will want to read our article called Disabilities are Labels.

Have your students recognized in the AMAA  Profiles of Adaptive Students.  

Its never too early to start planning your Fall Community Service Campaign. We need your help. Please sign your school up for the Million Kick Campaign – this is an adaptable fundraiser that can focus on what your school does best..kicks, punches, forms, breaking, take downs etc.

Yours in Adaptive Training,  Kathleen Maxey-Scarcello
