Predictors of Sport Participation in Youth with Intellectual Disability: Who Get and Stays Involved (the SPY-ID Project)

Participation in sport is an important activity for Canadian youth with and without disabilities, linked to numerous benefits. Youth with intellectual disabilities, who represent approximately 2% of the Canadian population, continue to struggle to access typical recreational, leisure, and social activities. These youth are less likely to get involved in community sports or be physically active, and if they do participate, may withdraw because of high levels of social rejection and experiences of failure.

*The parent survey aims to identify factors that lead to involvement and retention in sport for youth.*

Doing so could lead to improvements in sports initiatives that would impact them as youth and also guide their interests and activities into adulthood.
