Physical Literacy for Older Adults
In the older adult population, the ability and confidence of an individual to participate in various physical activities is a strong predictor of participation levels. Awareness and education of physical literacy as it applies to the older adult population, informing the strategies of physical activity advocates, promoters and facilitators, and older adults themselves, may be the missing link in achieving a sustained increase in physical activity participation in this group.  This session will focus on identifying opportunities to develop physical literacy in an older adult population.
