Adapted Movement Programs

My project will focus on IUPUI's Adapted Movement Programs and their impact on the Indianapolis community. AMP is a program connected to the IUPUI School of Health and Human Sciences that pairs students with children and adults with mental and physical disabilities and has students custom make workout routines that highlight the client's needs and capabilities. One of my personal responsibilities within the program include overseeing student-client pairings and ensuring professional interaction between client and student. I also help with the initial pairing decisions between clients and students as well as come up with new ways to improve the clinic for the participants.
