General Purpose: In this project, an adapted basketball training module will be prepared for individuals with intellectual disabilities aged 12-16. This training program is aimed to increase the quality of life of children, to accelerate their adaptation to social life, and develop fine and gross motor skills. It is aimed to organize a tournament between children with disabilities who complete the training and children who are not disabled. Through tournaments, the expectations and attitudes of people who are not disabled in the education and rehabilitation of the disabled will be observed. In addition, it is expected to raise social awareness by creating a platform where disabled people and those who are not disabled will come together. Since sports have different forms in our social life, there is a need for athletes who have special expertise especially in the fields of disability and illness. It is considered to draw a road map for educators working in the field of special education with this basketball project which is adapted because the number of athletes who have special expertise cannot be reached to an adequate level. Since the outputs of this study will also have an academic infrastructure, its dissemination and implementation in many rehabilitation institutions are among the objectives.
Project Target Group: Individuals with intellectual disabilities between the ages of 12-16.Project Final Group: Families of children with disabilities, children who are not disabled, families of children who are not disabled.Project Method: In order to perform the project activities and obtain the expected outputs, the implementation method of the project will be considered as a qualitative research method.
