Student Project Resources: Barriers to Participation in Sports and Physical Activity

Disability SPOT hosted four final-year physiotherapy students from the University of Sydney for a project placement. The students investigated the barriers to participation in sport/physical activity that exist for children with a disability. As part of their project they have developed the following resources:

-An in-depth literature review on this topic. Their review also contains a summary table of the barriers to participation that have been identified in the research alongside suggested strategies to overcome these.

-A detailed database of inclusive sport and physical activity opportunities in Sydney, Illawarra and the Central Coast.
