Great Strides Start’s PE Program

The Great Strides School PE program was trialed two years ago by taking the advanced learners to Chuck Rogers’ park to learn and eventually play a modified soccer game with staff. We now offer PE every school day in each school classroom facilitated by a classroom PE Lead and supervised by the school’s Physical Therapist to assist with any physical accommodations needed for the students.

This program was developed by Rebecca Kilgore, PT, DPT, BCaBA, a licensed physical therapist and board certified assistance behavior analyst, who explains,

“The goal for our school’s PE program is to assist our students in learning the fundamental building blocks for play, sports, coordination, and cardio/muscle endurance all while having fun and interacting with staff and peers.”
