The Right to Education, makes education a fundamental right of every child between the ages of 6 and 14. Right to study is for all children including those who are physically and mentally challenged. They may be afflicted with various types of disabilities and disorders. All students have the right to come to school to develop their abilities through the process of education. So, in addition to the regular programmes of PE, the schools must provide Adapted Physical Education (APE) Programmes.

    1. development of gross motor and fine motor skills
    2. conditioning different systems in the body
    3. developing emotional health and wellbeing

This committee defined Adapted Physical Education as “a diversified Programme of growing activities, and games. It also included sports, and rhythms suited to the interests, capacities, and limitations of students. It was with special needs who may not safely or successfully engage in unrestricted help in the rigorous activities of the regular Physical Education Programme.”

It has been adapted or modified, so that it is as appropriate for the person with a infirmity it is for a person without a condition. It is basically a Physical Education Programme specially designed for differently-abled students. The purpose is to make physical education activities safe, achievable, enjoyable and, therefore, a successful experience.

APE is safe and beneficial even for infants and toddlers who need early intervention services because of growing delays in physical, cognitive, speech, social and emotional aspects. Moreover, APE is not only for differently-abled infants and students but also for the people of all ages.
