Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy sport and fitness. Learn how to ensure that happens. As demographics continue to change and expand, it will be more important for sport and fitness professionals to be prepared to provide for everyone. In "Inclusive Recreation" students will learn to provide programmes and services not only to individuals with disabilities but also to people of both sexes and all ages, cultures, ethnicities, races and religions. The book features the latest theories in inclusion, as well as background information to give students a real understanding of the field. Also included are strategies for becoming more conscious of diversity and disability, and how to use appropriate language and communication skills. "Inclusive Recreation" also helps students learn more about the groups they'll likely meet as professionals. They'll look at the socio-demographic characteristics of each group, the factors that affect their participation in sport and fitness, and approaches for serving the needs of each population. Throughout the book are examples of inclusive practices from a variety of sectors to help students understand how inclusion strategies work in real programmes. Best practices are taken from various countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, the USA and the UK.
