Disability and Sport: Insights and Challenges through the application of ICF standards from the Organizational Perspective

Luisa Varriale, Paola Briganti, Maria Ferrara


This paper aims to investigate the link between disability and sport fields by adopting an organizational perspective through the application of “International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health” (ICF) framework. Disability represents one relevant phenomenon worldwide but scholars and practitioners still pay scarce attention for proposing and implementing effective managerial and organizational solutions to overcome barriers or constraints for disabled people. The introduction of the ICF can significantly support the real widespread of the idea “free world for all”, also thanks to the crucial role of sport in promoting the social inclusion.

This paper provides a deep reading of both phenomena, disability and sport, through the ICF standards application, to suggest and promote organizational and managerial solutions, especially in terms of training, in any organiza- tional contexts.
