I Can Do It! A Physical Activity Program for K–12 Students with Disabilities

ICDI works to achieve its objectives through the program’s three core tenets: MENTORING, GOAL SETTING, and RECOGNITION.  The ICDI Program is offered in eight week intervals throughout the school year, but the program can begin at any time. Ideally, the program is conducted all year long culminating with an end of year awards ceremony/celebration.
