David Schillo: Creating Adaptive Physical Education Systems

David Schillo earned a Master’s degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Adapted Physical Education from East Carolina University. He has long held an interest in creating better systems for people, especially young people, suffering from severe mental or physical disabilities to still reap the benefits of an active lifestyle.

David Schillo, as a graduate student, was the program manager of the East Carolina University Developmental Motor Lab, where he and his students were “responsible for creating customized adapted physical activity plans aimed to work towards a physical goal such as walking upstairs, writing with a pencil, shooting a ball, or running track.”

David Schillo now volunteers with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and helps students with disabilities develop their own physical activity plans at Dickson County Middle School in Dickson, Tennessee, where he is a science teacher.

Typically, an instructor involved in Adaptive Physical Education provides many services to disabled students such as planning, prescription and placement, advocacy, and the coordination of resources and consulting, as well as the evaluation of services available to students. David Schillo has gone above and beyond as an instructor at Dickson County Middle School as an advocate for students with disabilities.
