1 Adult Specialized Activity Program Research Consultants: Andrew Sampson, Mark Harris, Mitch Wilson, Ryan Gosse, Ryan Sloan

2  Overview  Objectives 1-5  Conclusion  Questions

3  3 rd year of operation  Helps special needs adults with phyisical activity programs throughout Antigonish  Swimming and Gym  Future Uncertain  10 members, participants

4  Yes, we feel based on multiple criteria that ASAP should build the program as well as expand to other universities in Halifax, and Wolfville.  Acadia’s SMILE program (300 volunteers)  DAL and SMU are involved with Project Maximize focused on teaching children to read.  Research shows that the demand for student involvement is out there (over 90 societies on the Stfx campus)  ASAP is different in the sense that the program is tailored towards adults with special needs

5  Funding will be required for facilities (Gym, Pool)  Transportation (to and from group home)  Apparel  Letter w/ Mission Statement  Progress Reports– Plan to attract donations  Current Sponsors

6  Research Study 1 ->PE Students attitudes towards participation of special needs youth in regular classes.  Research Study 2 ->Teachers attitudes towards integration/inclusion

8  Meeting with St.fx’s student union society coordinator  Kerrin Duggan  Conclusions and recommendations  Provide ASAP with an opportunities to benefit their organization as well as getting more people involved.  A society would be a good step toward reaching future goals

9  Target first and second year students (with time left at X)  Low awareness on campus  Search too broad, surveyed existing members  Relatives w/ past experience

10  ASAP should expand and work with existing organizations at other campuses in Nova Scotia  Partnerships with sponsors should be worked out that include donated facilities and transportation costs.  Student attitudes are positive but an awareness campaign would be beneficial. Definitely a market for this.  Should be incorporated as a society.  Future candidates should have passing familiarity with the program, and also experience working with special needs adults or youth.
