Abstract

Identifying strategies that facilitate participation in physical activity for children and youth with disabilities is recognised as an urgent priority. Embedding consumer-determined priorities within the research process, this thesis investigates the mechanisms and contexts that enable children and youth with disabilities to participate in physical activity. Interventions that are goal­ directed, family-centred, and include support networks for children, parents, health professionals, and community service providers, optimise physical activity participation outcomes and promote and sustain practices. These findings can inform the development of more effective interventions, facilitate translation into practice, and improve participation outcomes for children and youth with disabilities.
