Position statement supports activities for disabled

In its Position Statement on Sports and Recreational Programs for Physically Disabled People, the Academy observes that participation in such activities can be fulfilling, increase physical fitness and enhance personal image. Having the ability to set and achieve goals and the capability to deal with success and failure in the competitive arena are important accomplishments.

A copy of the Position Statement is available in the "Library" section of the Academy's home page www.aaos.org.
