This document from the U.S. Department of Education discusses IDEA’s physical education requirements for students with disabilities.  Its purposes are to disseminate information on improving opportunities for children and youth to access PE and athletics and to refer the reader to sources of additional information regarding the inclusion of children and youth with disabilities in PE and athletic extracurricular activities. Released in August 2011, the guidance is entitled Creating Equal Opportunities for Children and Youth with Disabilities to Participate in Physical Education and Extracurricular Athletics.  (posted September 1, 2011)
