Disability Inclusion Training

The National Disability Inclusion Training course was developed by the CARA Adapted Physical Activity Centre at the Institute of Technology, Tralee. The Course is designed to assist participants with the ideas and inspiration to adapt sports to make them more accessible for participants with a disability.

It is both a theoretical and practical programme that covers terminology and barriers to participation; offers guidance; gives an introduction to disability sports and ways of adapting activities to make them inclusive.

The programme was developed in partnership with Cerebral Palsy Sports Ireland, Special Olympics Ireland, the Football Association of Ireland and Coaching Ireland.

The next Disability Inclusion Training will take place Autumn 2017, click here to register.
