The purpose of this study was to present a Wheelchair Sportive Initiation Protocol (WSIP). In addition we verified the effects of a sport initiation program in the target motor components fields (considering the main motor skills and capabilities for sport initiation in wheelchair). The intervention was carried out over 24 sessions. Three children aged 6-10 years with physical disability and lower limbs impairment participated in this study. The WSIP is composed for nine tests divided in four components groups: stabilization; locomotion; manipulation and matched. We believe that the instrument enables the assessment as well as follow-up of the learner with physical disability. Moreover, the WSIP allows assessing the components regarding the sport initiation in wheelchair.
