The purpose was to validate a self-efficacy (SE) instrument toward including students with disability in physical education (PE). Three scales referring to intellectual disabilities (ID), physical disabilities (PD), or visual impairments (VI) were administered to 486 physical education teacher education (PETE) majors. The sample was randomly split, and exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses (EFA and CFA, respectively) were conducted. After deleting items that did not meet inclusion criteria, EFA item loadings ranged from 0.53 to 0.91, and Cronbach’s alpha reliability was high (for ID = .86, PD = .90, and VI = .92). CFA showed that the ID scale demonstrated good goodness-of-fit, whereas in the PD and in the VI scales demonstrated moderate fit. Thus, the content and construct validity of the instrument was supported.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of completion of an adapted physical education (APE) course with an associated on-campus practicum on preservice physical educators’ self-efficacy beliefs toward the inclusion of individuals with specific disabilities (autism, intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, and visual impairments). Preservice students in physical education teacher education (N = 98) at a large U.S. Midwestern university enrolled in 1 of 2 separate 15-wk APE courses with an associated 9-wk practicum experience were surveyed at the beginning, middle, and conclusion of each course. Results of 4 separate 2-factor fixed-effect split-plot ANOVAs revealed significant improvements in self-efficacy beliefs from Wk 1 to Wk 8 and from Wk 1 to Wk 15 across all disability categories. Significant differences between courses were found only for autism in Time 1.

. Though the transgender community has seen many successes, setbacks are all too common, and questions about their place in sport persist. In this paper, we focus on transgender inclusion in sport. To do so, we first present a case for why transgender individuals should be included in sport, and then

These data collectively highlight the need for a strong commitment to transgender inclusion in sport and physical activity, including in locker rooms and other team spaces.

reflect this idea as sport is used as a platform for activism around social justice issues both sport and nonsport related ( Zaru, 2017 ). Players, coaches, and sport organizations are demonstrating support for diversity and inclusion via advocacy efforts. This is ironic, however, as the sport industry

across settings and context ( Krischler et al., 2019 ). Finkelstein et al. ( 2019 ) describe inclusive education as “contextually-bound”: what represents inclusive education is dependent “on the context and specific needs of stakeholders” (p. 3). Thus, what inclusion “looks-like” can be different across

The social, physical, health, and economic impact and benefits of sport at the individual, local, state, national, and global levels make sport a unique context through which to break down barriers and facilitate inclusion of people with disabilities ( Di Palma et al., 2016 ; Lastuka & Cottingham
