Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

A community adaptive sports and recreation program promotes social, physical, and emotional health and well-being for people with disabilities. Since the program’s inception, many participants have voluntarily submitted letters and stories describing the program’s impact on their daily lives. This research qualitatively examined the significance of engagement in this program on participants’ health and well-being by analyzing their true lived experiences, expressed in their own words.
