DR JENNIFER MACTAVISH (CAN) – INAS/IPC WORKING GROUP

Prof. Jennifer Mactavish has been instrumental in the work of inclusion of athletes with an intellectual disability in the sporting community, from the local to regional, and from national to International levels for many years.

Her greatest contribution came as part of the then INAS/IPC group that sought to establish classification procedures to enable athletes with an intellectual disability to compete again in Paralympic sport.

Jennifer has never wavered in her pursuit of equal opportunities to those with a disability, in particular intellectual disability.
