dc.description.abstractThis capstone project presents an exploration and understanding of the perceived benefits of adaptive sports for individuals with disabilities. The exploration has assessed three main types of benefits of adaptive sports (i.e., social, physical, and psychological) as a basis for why adaptive sport should be necessary in society. Research studies done to assess benefits of adaptive sport are also discussed which aid in understanding the findings explored in the project. The project also explores and discusses the gaps and limitations in the research and literature that is available. A major finding from this exploration was that there is less research into the social benefits of exercise and adaptive sports for participants as there is research for the psychological aspects.en_US
