adaptations in dape
Adaptations in DAPE
  • Equipment-shapes, colors, sizes, weights, and textures of balls
  • Environment-Designate areas for equipment, “quiet” area, instructional area. Also smaller spaces
  • Instruction-Verbal and Demonstrate and KEY! Also peer teach or through play
  • Rules-Modify. If multiple levels of students in a class limit what each level can do. For example higher functioning must catch the volleyball before it hits the ground, whereas lower functioning can catch it on a bounce.

problems with dape
Problems with DAPE
  • Some schools are still “Old” school teaching the same thing over and over
  • Programs vary from district to district and even school to school
  • Not involving the lowest functioning students-let them sit off to the side or day dream
  • Para-professionals are more involved than the students
  • Less time than general PE classes

DAPE done right
  • Activity is varied-day to day, and week to week
  • Instruction is given each day and throughout the day
  • Rules become progressively harder throughout the unit
  • Having all the students involved, even if on the smallest level
