An inclusive active environment is one that provides the opportunity for active kids of all abilities and interests to participate in a variety of activities. An active kid with a disability benefits from quality active experiences as much as any other active kids. Active kids without a disability can learn about the abilities of friends and family members and gain an appreciation that individual differences exist and that participating in an activity in a different way does not lessen its value.

This article looks at how children with multiple disabilities, in wheelchairs, with an amputation, with cerebral palsy or with a visual impairment can be physically active.
