Abstract

In presence of a disabled subject, team games sports represent the best kind of expression and construction of the values of solidarity and healthy confrontation, where the student is not considered for its difficulty, but because of its "different" potential, designed as a resource. The sport can be the ideal training setting in the development of the social identity of the disabled, using simulation games that invite all students to identify themselves in different roles with different perceptions of life (role playing) goes well perfectly with methods of cooperative learning. This approach stimulates sense of solidarity among the peer group turning, to disabled and not only, the love of life and hope. Our research group wants to examine, on a theoretical-argumentative level, conditions and variables necessary so that the sport is a valid approach to become wealthy and improve the available and unexpressed capacities, feeding self-esteem. Through better awareness and self-knowledge and its limits, motor and sport activities, in fact, are the ideal tool to reach the disabled the self-respect and dignity, offering more opportunities to be able to integrate both at the work and social place. To conclude, research shows clearly that sport for the disabled aims to facilitate the achievement of three main targets: awareness of their limitations and of their potential; self-esteem and self-efficacy leaving out of consideration the results achieved in the performance; socialization, integration and social inclusion, which are productive resources of society.
