This study took the form of a single subject case study which focused upon the child with emotional and behavioural difficulties in physical education. Specifically the study aimed to investigate three issues. Behaviows that influence a positive experience of physical education, behaviours that negate a positive experience of physical education and teaching adaptations in physical education for the child with emotional and behavioural difficulties. The participant was a white male at key stage 3 of learning, attending a special school in South Wales. A comprehensive behaviour rating scale was completed by the physical education teacher; the results of this scale were the basis for participant observation, which was employed over a duration of two weeks. Prior to this process a fonnal letter of consent was delivered to the school and the parent, which explained the author's intentions and requirements while also ensuring confidentiality and anonymity. These were returned with a signature indicative of compliance and understanding. The conclusions highlighted that physical education can promote appropriate behaviour from the child with EBD.
