ICYMI: Department Of Health And Kinesiology Held 2nd Able, Active, And Adaptive Conference


The Department of Health and Kinesiology in the College of Education and Human Development hosted the second annual Able, Active, and Adaptive Conference on March 1 at the Physical Education Activity Program building at Texas A&M University.

AAA is a student-led event that promotes inclusion and support for individuals with disabilities and disorders through adaptive sports and educational experiences.

Participants engaged in various activities, such as wheelchair rugby, student panels and therapy horses. The event also featured keynote speakers Beth Fox and Anthony Ianni.

Beth Fox, ADA compliance consultant and former special education educator, spoke on adapting in life. Her keynote address focused on how to make adaptations to promote inclusion in the classroom, workplace and on the playing fields to help others gain success.

“Throughout our lives I believe we are all seeking to fit in and in different circumstances we grow, we learn, we change and we have to do some adapting,” Fox said.

Anthony Ianni was the first Division I basketball athlete with autism in NCAA history. He played for Michigan State University and was a member of the 2010 and 2012 Big Ten Championship teams.

His current mission is to inspire others to be relentless in achieving their dreams. He left those in attendance with the three keys to success—motivation, hard work and support.
