Butler Brown Bag Series for Faculty Research, Scholarship, and Creative Work
“Adaptive Sports Clinics for Special Needs Children: A Unique Three-Part Collaboration”
Presentation by Anne Wilson (Chemistry)
Tuesday, November 13
Reilly Room, Atherton Union
Since 2013, Butler University Athletics has hosted adaptive sports clinics. These adaptive clinics have seen children with a wide array of physical and developmental disabilities engage in basketball, football, baseball, and softball. In conjunction with physical therapy students from the Indiana University School of Medicine, these clinics have been designed to fully engage individuals in sports-related activities with individual adaptations made on-the-fly by the PT students. The positive outcomes for participants, student athletes, physical therapy students, and the Butler community at large will be discussed. Special guests from these constituencies will be sharing their perspectives.
Students, staff, and faculty are all welcome – no RSVP required.
