No Accidental Champions
Athletes with a disability (AWADs) are first and foremost athletes, and for this reason, virtually everything in the able-bodied Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model is applicable.
The able-bodied LTAD model and its resource paper, Canadian Sport for Life, should be the starting point for all athletes. No Accidental Champions is, therefore, only concerned with additional factors that need to be considered when working with AWADs.
