At the core of the ACA Adaptive Program, Adaptive Paddling Workshops (APWs) provide the information necessary to seamlessly integrate individuals with physical disabilities into outdoor recreation programs in the context of paddlesports.

APWs focus on five key topics:

(1) Language, Etiquette and Interaction

(2) The Legal Context

(3) Cultivating Seamless Integration

(4) Adaptive Outfitting Concepts & Goals

(5) Mechanics of Adaptive Outfitting for Paddlesports.

An APW involves hands-on learning in both a classroom and in calm, protected waters. These workshops are designed to provide instructors, outfitters, recreation program providers, and rehabilitation professionals with the information they need to integrate paddlers with disabilities into programs. Under the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, a person may not be excluded from a program just because they have a disability. Program providers need to be prepared to integrate persons with disabilities into existing programs.

An APW can be used once as the Update portion of your ACA Instructor certification maintenance requirements for all ACA paddling disciplines, except Safety and Rescue.

For additional questions about the APW curriculum or Endorsement standards: Please call Joe Moore at 843.637.7269
