Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization

What is the Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization?

The Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization (APEAA) is an authorization that is typically added onto a Single Subject Physical Education Credential. The authorization can be added to a Multiple Subject, Single Subject (non PE) or Education Specialist credential with additional course requirements to gain subject matter competency. The Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization permits candidates to teach physical education to students with disabilities. 

Courses are designed to ensure that candidates have opportunities to develop a broad education and philosophical background on which to base their Adapted Physical Education program decisions. The authorization may be added to an existing credential or earned concurrently with a credential.

The Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization is not a standalone credential, it must be added onto an existing Single Subject, Multiple Subject, or Education Specialist credential. Classes for the added authorization can be taken concurrently with credential classes.
