Making Gyms Accessible and Inclusive for People with Intellectual Disability

FlexAble aims to raise awareness of the issues and barriers people with intellectual disabilities face joining the gym and how to build an inclusive gym environment.

FlexAble has been developed by Developmental Disability WA (DDWA), funded through an Australian Government Department of Social Services grant. It aims to build innovative ways to increase independence, social and community participation of people with disability.

This course was developed over a year through extensive literature review , participatory research, in collaboration with subject matter experts, fitness professionals and people with intellectual disability.
