Sport & Exercise

The purpose of this project is to evaluate sport and physical activity participation among youth with physical and sensory disabilities across Canada. Two telephone-based interviews were conducted among 50 youth to collect data related to sport and physical activity participation, along with levels of motivation, and perceptions of parental social support for sport and physical activity. Participants were recruited from Ontario (72%), Western Canada (BC, AB: 14%), Central Canada (SK, MB: 6%) and Eastern Canada (NL,NB,NS: 4%).These data are currently being analyzed to be included in a manuscript.
