Physical Activity Facilitators Wanted!

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Do you work with individuals with disabilities? Are you interested in helping them be more physically active? If so, we want you as a Facilitator!

The CED has partnered with the WVU School of Public Health to adapt their Physical Activity Toolkit to better serve individuals with disabilities. The purpose of this booklet is to provide activities that can be implemented in most settings (school, community, home) by any adult (parent, teacher, coach, neighbor) to increase children and adults with disabilities physical activity. For each activity in this booklet, we have provided ways to tailor these activities for all abilities (including those with disabilities). Activities can be modified for individual, small, or large groups.

Each facilitator will be given a tool kit in a duffle bag with materials for up to 10 participants. These tool kits include:

  • Detailed facilitators guide with modified activities and samples
  • Fitbits with instructions to track activity
  • Water bottles
  • Adapted exercise resources, videos and booklets
  • Fun items to increase activity like beanbags, jumbo dice, beach balls, etc.
