In Georgia, there is no separate endorsement or required specialized teacher certification for adapted physical educators. Because of this absence, the resulting span of personnel teaching adapted physical education (APE) in the state ranges widely in terms of certification areas. Educational administrators would benefit from knowing if any perceived differences exist between APE programs led by teachers with specialized APE certification and those led by general education PE teachers. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between APE teacher certification and school personnel perceptions of APE program practices.
