Inclusion Video Volleyball 2019 e1


Thank you so much for watching this inclusion
video series. The purpose of this inclusion video series
is to help teachers, parents and coaches include children with visual impairments in after
school sports and in physical education. We would like to thank the Lavelle Fund for
the Blind, the College at Brockport, Camp Abilities and the Institute for Movement Studies
for Individuals with Visual Impairments for their support for this video series. Welcome to our video on how to include individuals
with visual impairments and deafblindness into inclusive volleyball practice and competition. My name is Peter Rifensberger. I am a freshman at the college at Brockport. I compete in triathlons at an elite level
and I am currently studying in the field of adapted physical education. Today, I am going to talk to you about volleyball,
a very popular sport among children with visual impairments, as it is fun to play with friends
and family. What follows are a series of tips to help
you include students with visual impairments. Tip #1 Provide orientation to the court using
a tactile board Use a tactile board to provide the student
with the concept of the court, the boundaries, the positions and the net. Tip #2 Orient the child to the court itself
Together, walk the court and identify the location of each position. Show the height and width of the volleyball
net. Tip #3 Teach whole-part-whole
Teach the whole game before breaking down the game into parts. Have the class play a volleyball game and
explain the step-by-step action. Once the student understands the game, he
or she can learn the required skills to participate. Tip #4 Provide instruction
Teach the unique concepts of the game, such as bump pass, set, spike and serving. Tip #5 Teach using physical guidance
Physical guidance is when the instructor or a peer moves the student with visual impairments
through the motions such as learning to serve the ball. Tip #6 Teach using tactile modeling
Tactile Modeling is when the student with visual impairments feels the instructor or
a peer go through the motions such as setting the ball. Tip #7 Task analysis
Task analysis is when the skill is broken down into component parts. Always accompany each step with clear and
concise verbal instructions. For example, spiking a ball. The skill requires multiple steps. After several practices, have the student
repeat the drill at game speed. Tip #8 Game modifications
Here are some game modifications. 1. A bell volleyball 2. A plastic bag around the volleyball for sound 3. A portable sound source on the net 4. Bright pinnies 5. Verbal or audio assistance 6. Human guide 7. Allow a bounce 8. Allow the player to walk up to the net 9. Allow a catch 10.Allow the serve from different distances from
the net Tip #9 Game announcing
Always have an announcer for games so the student with visual impairment knows what
is happening during the volleyball game. Tips for teaching children who are deafblind. 1. Determine the best way to communicate before
and during the activity. This may be with tactile signs or tactile
cues. 2. Ensure the student knows all terms an concepts
associated with the sport. 3. Explain the signs and names of all equipment,
scoring, and strategies. Volleyball can be fun and enjoyable for children
with visual impairments. With some thoughtful modifications, they can
participate easily in class play or after school sports. Support for this video provided by: the Lavelle
