Welcome to the 18th
International Symposium of Adapted Physical Activity
Federation of Adapted Physical Activity (IFAPA) is a cross-disciplinary professional organization of individuals, institutions,
and agencies concerned with promotion and dissemination of knowledge and
information about adapted physical activity.
The International Symposium of Adapted
Physical Activity is a vehicle to raise awareness and
provide an outstanding setting for professionals to interact with world leaders
and international colleagues in adapted physical activity. ISAPA 2011 was
planned to be held in New Zealand. Because of the earthquake which damaged the
city of Christchurch, it was decided to change the location to Paris. We wish to
keep the program as close as it was planned and all efforts will be made to welcome
all participants from New Zealand, Oceania and Asia who planned to attend the
Symposium in NZ. We work hand in hand with the members of the NZ organizing
committee and hope that ISAPA 2011 in Paris will give you all the opportunity
to make an international contribution to adapted physical activity.
at ISAPA include practitioners, researchers, scholars, pedagogues, scientists,
teachers and students in a broad spectrum of fields. Fields include regular and
adapted physical education, community and therapeutic recreation, dance and
creative arts, sport training and competition, leisure education, psychomotor
therapy, kinesiology, medicine, nutrition, rehabilitation, special education,
occupational and physical therapy, and many other areas.
