Adaptive Physical Education
The Hartnell Adaptive Physical Education Program is an inclusionary program for the adult student with a health impairment or disabling condition. Our unique fitness program features an individualized program based on the student’s disability assessment and their short and long term goals. Incorporated into all classes are enjoyable positive experiences to enhance self-image and social interaction.
The primary goals are to increase functionality, pain control and independence for a healthy mind and body. Our Cardiac Wellness Program is designed to continue the restorative cardiovascular program initiated by their physician or therapist.
