Summary/Abstract: The presented paper is concerned with the analysis of the current state of inclusion in general physical education (PE). Even though, students with physical disabilities form a majority and permanently growing group of individually included students, this topic is not yet well described. The survey took place in 2007 in elementary schools. A research sample consisted of 164 PE teachers who taught students with physical disabilities (164 boys, 90 girls). Out of the whole research sample 160 students were included to PE classes. The other students were released from PE based on a recommendation from their physicians. It is evident that the inclusion within the frame of PE represents a unique phenomenon enabling a complex development of the student’s personality.
