Abstract

ABSTRACT: INDIVIDUALS WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY CAN BENEFIT FROM PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAMS. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT FITNESS PROFESSIONALS UNDERSTAND INDIVIDUALS' MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INTELLECTUAL AND SOCIAL ABILITIES, AS WELL AS THEIR REQUIRED SYSTEMS OF SUPPORT AND USE THIS KNOWLEDGE TO DESIGN AND ADAPT PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES ACCORDING TO THE NEEDS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL.
