This guide is the result of a collective effort by experts in Adapted Physical Activity (APA). It was led by Handicap International and in conjunction with Tunisian physical activity and sports professionals working in the socio-educational, rehabilitation and disability sports fields. This guide focuses on implementing APA in a recreational, educational or rehabilitation context rather than through a competitive sports approach.

As we will see throughout this guide, APA is based on factoring in each person’s differences, skills and abilities where exclusion has no place, and it leads to a more inclusive approach that fosters social participation by everyone, including persons with disabilities.
