- Children with intellectual disability have a weakness of motor skills, they tend to be less active. Minimal activity plays a major role in increasing the risk of overweight and obesity in children with intellectual disability. Overweight and obesity in children may increase the risk of various health problems and affect physical fitness. So this will worsen the physical abilities of children especially in mobility. Adaptive physical education is one of alternative way to solve the problems. This study aims to develop design model of adaptive physical education to increase physical fitness and descrease weight of children with intellectual disability. This study is one step of research development. This study through the preliminary stage, the initial model design and validation test by experts through discussion and suggestions written analyzed descriptively. The results of research are : a) physical fitness profile of children with intellectual disability are low and very low level, while body mass index (BMI) of the children is in the range 28-38 so categorized obesity level I and level II, b) the implementation of adaptive physical education in the school found many obstacles, so that the implementation is not optimal; c) design model of adaptive physical education consist of: assessment, determination of the program, implementation program, evaluation, and supporting factor.
