Abstract

Special education administrators need an understanding of adapted physical education (APE) educational service delivery in order to properly supervise APE service delivery to students with disabilities. However, some preliminary research has suggested that special education administrators have a general lack of knowledge related to APE. Content acquisition podcasts (CAPs) may provide them with the knowledge needed to effectively supervise APE services. The purposes of this study were to examine the impact of CAPs on special education administrators’ knowledge specific to APE and determine how special education administrators perceived CAPs as a form of professional development. Qualitative analyses, t-tests, and a repeated measures ANOVA were used to determine CAPs’ impact on 29 participants. Results revealed that the participants had a low understanding of APE; however the CAPs were found to increase the participants’ knowledge. In addition, the participants had positive perceptions towards the CAPs as a form of professional development.
