dc.description.abstractAbstract The purpose of this synthesis was to examine the existing body of literature on benefits of physical activity for adults with intellectual disabilities. Research has indicated many benefits that could be gained through physical activity and three main themes emerged which were physical, social and emotional health. With the help of caretakers and legal guardians who aid in day to day living for adults with ID, the overall quality of life could be increased through engagement in physical activity. Areas such as daily living, overall negative health prevention and overall well-being were seen as the most prevalent factors that could be improved through the use of physical activity. Future research should be focused on three main points which are quantitative physical test scores, perceptions of caretakers and legal guardians in aiding with the physical activity process and the benefits of long-term engagement in physical activity for adults with intellectual disabilities.
