Partner meeting 2015 (Kaunas)

September 2015 in Kaunas (Lithuania) during a partner meeting the first preliminary results of the inventory phase were presented. As main facilitators for children with a disability to engage in sport are seen: fun, motivators like teachers and family and becoming fit. As main barriers were identified: not enough sport opportunities (or lack of knowledge), dependency on others, accessibility and people’s attitude. A complicating factor for the project is that there are no uniform European definitions regarding this topic, making it difficult to compare the national data. Both the summarized presentation of this first preliminary results and the minutes of the partner meeting can be found here:
