YDF Manual for Disability Inclusion

Youth Development through Football (YDF) Manual for Disability Inclusion

The foundation module ' the YDF Manual for Coaches ' still constitutes the first introduction to the complex topic of inclusion, whereas the short module on 'Disability Inclusion' builds on the different forms of reaction that are possible and elaborates in detail on tips for taking action. YDF is convinced that every coach needs to build on general basic-training skills in order to implement the 'YDF Manual for Disability Inclusion' successfully and, as such, needs to be familiar with the content of the 'YDF Manual for Coaches'.

Key aspects of the 'YDF Manual for Disability Inclusion' include:

  • providing coaches with the knowledge to understand their own perceptions of disability and learn how the whole team can benefit from following an inclusive approach;
  • providing coaches with the social model of disability, as well as information about different physical and intellectual impairments and safety and medical considerations for people with disabilities;
  • examining how communication skills can be used to create positive and safe environments so that people with disabilities can be included in football sessions; and
  • providing coaches with the knowledge on how to involve people with hearing, physical, visual or learning impairments, complemented by a wide range of practical sessions.

In line with all the other YDF manuals, this manual is also equipped with case-study boxes and with training and lesson worksheets.
