Move United’s Inclusive Playbook was created to educate kids on disability awareness through the lens of adaptive sport. We encourage teachers, coaches, youth leaders, after-school caretakers, parks & recreation professionals, families and other disability advocates to use the Inclusive Playbook to bridge the gap between individuals with and without disabilities.
