Cara advocates for the Inclusion Continuum and the TREE model across all sport and physical activity settings.
Rather than thinking of inclusion as everyone participating together, consider inclusion as a process of ensuring ALL are included at a level appropriate to them.
The activities can vary from “open” to “modified”, “parallel”, “reverse integration”, and “separate”. Sometimes we can think of “inclusion” as everyone participating together, but “open” activities aren’t always possible or may not be the best option for a particular session. Consider ranging from “fully integrated” to “fully segregated” when planning your activities.
Regardless of the activity provided, how can a sport coach, leader, or teacher adapt or modify their sessions to ensure they are inclusive for all ability levels?
The TREE model can be applied to any given type of activity on the Inclusion Continuum. To modify and adapt your activities to make them more inclusive and accessible for all ability levels, you can take an inclusive approach in many different ways by applying this tool:
- Teaching or coaching style: you can adapt the way you communicate with the participants
- Rules and regulations: you can simplify or change the rules and regulations to make your activities more inclusive
- Equipment: you can modify the equipment you use to help the participants access your activities
- Environment: you can adjust where the activities happen and how they are structured to accommodate all ability levels
