Tradicionalmente, la actividad física adaptada ha sido utilizada para conseguir efectos terapéuticos y rehabilitadores en las personas con discapacidad. Actualmente, los educadores relacionados con la actividad física y deporte adaptado pretenden hacer ver a la sociedad en general que las personas con discapacidad pueden practicar actividades físicas y deportivas por las mismas motivaciones que las personas sin discapacidad. Para contribuir a este objetivo, y empleando como marco de referencia la teoría de las metas de logro, hemos analizado las motivaciones de una muestra de 80 personas con discapacidad funcional y otras 80 sin ningún tipo de discapacidad, todas ellas practicantes de actividades físico-deportivas. El instrumento de medida utilizado ha sido el Cuestionario de Motivos para la Participación de Brasile, Kleiber y Harnisch (1991). Los resultados indican que los deportistas con discapacidad están más orientados al ego que los deportistas sin discapacidad, y obtienen puntuaciones más elevadas en los factores de integración social y afectividad social, como motivos para sus prácticas físico-deportivas. Traditionally, adapted physical activity has been promoted for its physical and therapeutic effects on individuals with disabilities. Now, it could be assumed that people with disabilities derive the same satisfaction and benefit from sport participation as athletes without disabilities. However, there is little empirical evidence that relates specifically to the value of participation for athletes with disabilities and the motives for such participation. The sample for this study was comprised of 80 individuals with disabilities and 80 without disabilities. All of them participated in sport and physical activities. The instrument used in this study was the Participation Reasons Scale (PRS) by Brasile, Kleiber and Harnisch (1991). The results sowed that the athletes with disabilities were more ego involved than athletes without disabilities. On the other hand, athletes with disabilities scored higher in social integration incentives, and social affective incentives than athletes without disabilities, with respect to incentives for participation.

    ABSTRACT: Past work has documented and described major patterns of adaptive and maladaptive behavior: the mastery-oriented and the helpless patterns. In this article, we present a research-based model that accounts for these patterns in terms of underlying psychological processes. The model specifies how individuals' implicit theories orient them toward particular goals and how these goals set up the different patterns. Indeed, we show how each feature (cognitive, affective, and behavioral) of the adaptive and maladaptive patterns can be seen to follow directly from different goals. We then examine the generality of the model and use it to illuminate phenomena in a wide variety of domains. Finally, we place the model in its broadest context and examine its implications for our understanding of motivational and personality processes.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe: (a) the relationship between a woman's ability to manage (i.e., cope or come to terms wilh) her disability via regular physical activity and her perceptions of physical and psychological empowerment, and (b) the ways women manage their disabilities, in particular, how they used physical activity in the management process. In-depth interviews were conducted with 37 women who had chronic illness and physical mobility disabilities. Findings suggested a relationship between disability management via physical activity and empowerment (psychological or physical) among the women or this sample. They also indicated three different management approaches: (a) management by minimizing the significance of the body, (b) management by normalization of the body, and (c) management by optimizing mind-body functioning. The implications of these findings for sport and society are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The effects of impairment on children's patterns of daily activity were studied. Activity Pattern Indicator diary data were used to document typical daily activities of 239 children with disabilities (mostly spina bifida and cerebral palsy) and 519 nondisabled children. Activities of the two groups were compared using analysis of covariance techniques. The daily life of children with disabilities had less variety and a slower tempo, with more time being spent in dependent activities, quiet recreation, and personal care, and with less participation in social engagements, active recreation, household tasks, and activities away from home. Their activities were, however, more often associated with concurrent social input. Although statistically significant differences in activity were found, the size of differences were minor to moderate, except for indicators of dependence. Age was the covariate most strongly affecting activity. Results indicate similar developmental patterns for the two groups, but children with disabilities had less involvement with education and increased TV viewing with increasing age.
