My son is almost 8 and entering 3rd grade in the Fall. He still participates in regular PE and loves it. We do have modifications. Each year I meet with the teachers to teach and remind them of what he can/cannot do. Yes, there have been instances when they had him do something he shouldn't, but we just let them know and moved on. For my son, it would do more harm than good to have him in a different adaptive PE class or have him miss it all together. He wants to be as much like all the other boys as he can. We've learned that we really have to balance his physical AND mental health.
Gina, Can you tell me the wording that was used to get an aide for your son's class. I am trying to work on getting an aide for my son, since there is a lot of stairs, PE time, Recess time etc.... that he needs help, and I can't seem to find any guidance on the writing of IEPs.

This is a something I came across when I was looking for information to write my IEP for my sons. I think you have to copy and paste it.
We lucked out with our school district. What ever we ask for or suggest they will do for my boys.
My son Craig who is 7.5 and just finished 1st grade. He has an aide who is with him during PE, she would stretch him and do something different when he was not able to participate. He was allowed to have a few special friends with him. I tell him he has to pick different people each time and the aide helps him choose so their is no one being left out.
