Abstract

Barriers and Facilitators to Adaptive Sports on College Campuses by Lisa Osadchuk and Sean Bruna

This research examines scholarly literature regarding attitudes and behaviors related to adaptive sporting events. A literature review was conducted in anthropology, disability studies, and other databases using key terms such as disability, higher education, and adaptive sports. Articles were reviewed and categorized into three areas: anthropological perspectives, institutional challenges, and participant experiences. This review sheds new light into how adaptive sports can create inclusion and integration in the postsecondary environment for students with disabilities, while also highlighting changing attitudes of those students from their peers, faculty, staff and administrators.
