Guidance and Resources for Adults other than Teachers

How you can support the young disabled person you are working with in their PE and extra-curricular sport sessions

If you work in a school environment, and your role is to support a  disabled child or young person then you have a vital role to play in their involvement in PE and sport.  It may be that you have a lot of involvement in the PE sessions, it may be that you aren’t ever involved in the lessons, or it may be that the pupil(s) you support don’t currently do PE.  You have an important role to play whatever the situation – you can bring a lot to the PE lesson and what the disabled young people you support gains from the activities and sports involved.  Thinking about these things might make all the difference:

  • Talk to the teacher/PE teacher and let them know that you would be interested in supporting the young person within their PE sessions (if you don’t already)

  • Ask the teacher if you can be involved with the planning, or at least know what the sessions will involve, so that you can think about how you might modify, adapt or progress the activity so that the young person you support is challenged by it

  • Work with the teacher so that everyone is included in their session

  • Access a Sainsbury’s Active Kids for All workshop, and encourage the PE specialist/PE teacher to come with you

  • Contact Disability Sport Wales for further support, guidance and ideas
