schools may strategically comply, adjust to the prevailing culture, or attempt to strategically redefine their physical education departments’ practices and perspectives for the worse ( Lawson, 1983a , 1983b ). Little is known about the occupational socialization of adapted physical educators (APEs), the

traits have been associated with adaptive outcomes in physical education (PE)-related settings such as physical activity ( Wilson & Dishman, 2015 ), academic achievement ( Ackerman, 2013 ), health ( Jackson, Dimmock, Gucciardi, & Grove, 2011 ), and sport ( Allen, Greenlees, & Jones, 2013 ). Despite these

To successfully conduct quality research, professionals in adapted physical activity (APA) must address a number of unique and challenging issues. These issues include difficulty in acquiring large and homogenous samples; developing valid, reliable, and commercially available test instruments and protocols specific to persons with disabilities; properly training doctoral students to conduct quality research; and maintaining a specific research focus. With regard to these issues, this paper provides the following recommendations: utilize alternative research designs; acquire adequate graduate research training; develop a research focus as an adapted physical activity researcher; and promote an interdisciplinary, collaborative research effort among professionals. Most important, through continued scholarly research adapted physical activity professionals will be able to expand the scientific body of knowledge.
