Research Interests

My teaching, research, and professional service is focused on teaching and teacher education in physical education, sport and adapted physical education; Specifically, I have a deep interest in the attitudes and perceptions of pre-service PE teachers and the facilitation of inclusion with the Irish educational system. My current research projects focus on the physical activity levels of children with disabilities as well as parent perceptions of the assessment and IEP process as they relate to Physical Education in Ireland.

  Description

Inclusive Play & Leisure Activities for Youth (i-PLAY) is a weekly physical activity programme designed for children, youth, and young people (ages 5-21) with special needs held within the PESS Dept. here at the University of Limerick. The main goal of this weekly programme is to engage participants in various physical activities (dance, games, HRA, etc.) throughout the academic semester. Each participant is paired with one of our pre-service Physical Education students receiving individual attention, support, and encouragement. The focus is on promoting physical activity for young people; incorporating it into their daily life (i.e., school, after school, and at home). The main goals of the programme are:

  • To provide children and young people with special needs the opportunity to play and interact socially with peers,
  • To provide pre-service PE teachers with the opportunity to gain experience in planning and assisting youth with special needs as it relates to the physical activity setting, and
  • To provide families an opportunity to connect with one another as a way to support each other and their children with special needs.
