The Health and Human Performance Department at the University of Wisconsin-Superior offers a program for physical education teachers who wish to complete the Wisconsin 860 Add-On Certification in Adapted Physical Education.

The adapted physical education program prepares you to design and adapt movement and activity experiences for people with disabilities. Students enrolled in the program gain knowledge and experience in motor assessment, activity modification, behavior management, curriculum design and adaptations, medical aspects of disabling conditions, fitness and sports programs and other related topics.

This set of courses meets Wisconsin certification requirements when paired with the Physical Education major. Completion for licensure requires completion of the teacher certification coursework and one semester of student teaching. 

If you currently hold a degree and are interested in teaching, UW-Superior offers licensure programs that apply your prior coursework. For more information, contact admissions@uwsuper.edu.
