dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to identify factors involved in the growth and development of adaptive physical education programs, specifically those in the province of Prince Edward Island. The introduction is an historical look at the growth and development of adaptive physical education, from its inception, to today's modern processes, including influences from American legislation, and the development of the Individualized Education Plan. Information on the current milieu in Prince Edward Island was obtained through a survey of practicing physical education teachers in the province. The main objective is to identify: (1) the present day situation on Prince Edward Island in respect to the availability of programs, and physical educator opinions, (2) openness to mainstreaming in physical education in the province, in respect to how well teachers are trained, and how teachers are motivated in teaching adaptive physical education, (3) the overall growth and development of adaptive physical education. It will be discussed how the provincial government might better concentrate on making sure quality adaptive physical education is provided in the future.
