Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

Have students play the game of t-ball/softball as they would play it normally (with a tee, softer ball, pitched ball, etc.) However, to make it a fully inclusive game you need to use a few adaptations. You can do some or all of the following:

Instead of having students with disabilities batting a ball off the tee use the die. If the #1 comes up the student automatically gets a single, a #2 a double, etc. (see above). If an "X" comes up it is one strike, a "O" is one ball;

Students in the field need to count to a certain number (such as 10) before they can tag out the runner with a disability;

Students using wheelchairs can either push themselves around the bases or have a peer educator push them;

Students with disabilities should have a peer educator with them in the field to: give them the ball (if in a chair), help direct them to the ball, help them catch, throw, etc.;

Shorten the base distances for students with disabilities
