The “I Can Do It” program is a strategic physical activity program for students with disabilities in the K-12 school setting designed to provide access, equity, and facilitate and encourage opportunities for students with disabilities to be physically active for 60 minutes a day.This can be accomplished by accumulating the 60 minutes through physical education, adapted physical education, recess, classroom physical activity breaks, active transport to and from school, community partnerships, and extracurricular activities, including a variety of club and sport activities.
The implementation of I Can Do It! supports the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition, the National Strategy for Youth Sports, and the WSCC model. The program is easy to implement and has shown several positive outcomes for students with disabilities.
