Physical Education
Greg loves physical education class. He is in eleventh grade student in a self-contained classroom. He is mainstreamed for three periods into general education. During, his time in physical education he has sensory issues and a medical issue called Chiari Malformation. The concern in this period is when the weather is too cold for the physical education classes to go outside, so all students are in the gym. This means there are over 100 students in the gym, which can be an issue for Greg. What solution could I (the coach) come up with to decide whether or not Greg should participate during this class period, in this type of situation?

I find that when you are dealing with a large amount of students it helps to split them up into smaller groups. Simply by offering more game options to the class, you can naturally split the class up into smaller sections that Greg can deal with more easily.

I am a substitute and I had physical education last week. I agree with having a bunch of small games would help.

You can keep control better and keep the focus of the group with smaller ones.

I would have an established roster of about 15-20 students that you can take into an empty classroom (maybe even have a few rosters so the students are not the same every time and Greg has the opportunity to interact with multiple students) and do activities like silent speed ball or other indoor physical education actitvities. This will ensure that Greg is still getting the opportunity to socialize with others, but it isn't in an environment that would make him uncomfortable.

Well certainly contact sports are out for Greg. Greg can participate in other activities. Fitness days where he can be somewhat separated from the rest of the kids to do a routine involving push ups,running in place or even a drills like a shuttle run or relay run where Greg is running by himself that can be done inside the gymnasium.

Students with sensory issues typically overreact to an invasion of their personal space. Accommodations that include a personal space are helpful, but if we are talking about participating in a PE environment with 100+ students, it may be a good idea to implement occupational therapy. The therapist can work with Greg to become desensitized to certain types of touch.

I feel the best solution would be to ask Greg if he feels comfortable in this situation. If he says yes I would observe him for a short amount of time and personally determine if he should participate.
