The aim of this study was to investigate the opportunities available for participation in physical activity for children with Additional Support Needs and or disabilities in a sample of mainstream primary schools in Glasgow. Despite the voluminous amount of research that has been published in the field of physical activity there remains a paucity of information on activity patterns in exercise for children with Additional Support Needs. The research has been prompted by concerns and anecdotal stories about low levels of participation in physical activity by young children with ASN in a mainstream setting. As part of the Standards Scotland Schools Act 2000 (section 15) schools, across Scotland, will offer mainstream education to all children, including those with physical and educational special needs, other than in exceptionally circumstances. The specific aim of f 'Research was to highlight barriers against children with ASN participating in physical activity sessions to the same extent as their able bodied peers.
