For its application, a series of materials and activities have been developed by experts in the field of Physical Education and disability, addressing different sports modalities, among which we find ordinary, adapted and specific sports from an inclusive methodology.
All content is available on the web's private platform http://www.deporteinclusivoescuela.com/, which facilitates access to resources from any place, space and electronic device for teachers, sports professionals, educational centers and other institutions interested in developing the DIE program.
In order to have access to the resources, activities and content of the DIE programme, all the centers and teachers interested in participating must make a firm and unequivocal commitment to its development, which must be formalized in the signature of the commitment to participate by the management of the center.
