Factors Affecting Participation
By Harry Craig
Access can affect the participation because the disabled person may not be able to gain access to the building because of steps. Ways this can be prevented are by installing ramps in the building instead of steps; increasing the size of the doors therefore it is easy for the disabled person to get around the building and by installing disabled showers, toilets and changing rooms.
The sport its self can affect the participation because it might not be suitable for the person with that disability. Therefore most sports are adapted for the disabled person like putting a bell in the ball in blind football. Also to make disabled sport there are categories that the disabled people are put into. These categories are: Amputee, Cerebral paulsy, intellectual disability, Les autres (the others), visually impaired and wheelchair.
