The Canadian Physical Activity Report Card for Children and Adolescents with Disabilities, the first comprehensive summary of physical activity data for children and youth with disabilities, was released today!
An interdisciplinary team of researchers (with expertise in childhood disability, physical activity, health behaviour change, surveillance and inclusive physical education programming), representatives from disability and physical activity organizations, and parents of children and adolescents with disabilities reviewed national level surveys and government reports to grade 13 indicators using benchmarks of the Global Matrix 4.0 and previous Canadian Physical Activity Report Cards.
Congratulations to HALO postdoctoral fellow Dr. Corey Kuzik on his contributions to this project!
The new Disability Report Card resource suite has been created to accompany the Disability Report Card, which includes several knowledge products that describe the grading and evaluation process, highlight data gaps and provide recommendations to improve the quality of physical activity experiences for children and adolescents with disabilities.
