Abstract

Persons with intellectual disability can benefit from a multimodal approach to physical activity by incorporating cardiorespiratory, resistance training, flexibility, and neuromotor exercises into each week's sessions. Exercises should be adaptable and modified to accommodate an individual's moods, behaviors, and levels of engagement on a session-to-session basis.
