Adaptive Physical Education Specialists


The employment outlook for adaptive physical education specialists is solid. More attention is being paid to identifying children with disabilities early on, so more adaptive physical education specialists will be needed to screen and place students in special education programs as well as to instruct and guide them. The Department of Labor projects 3 percent employment growth for all special education teachers, including adapted physical education teachers, through 2028, which is slower than the average for all other occupations. The federal budget affects special education programs but laws mandate that students with disabilities have access to free public education. States must maintain the same level of financial support for special education each year.
