With the deepening of the reform of the education system, physical education plays a more and more important role in the components of special education. Sports activities play an important role in enhancing the physical quality of young children and promoting their all-round development. Through the carding and analysis of the relevant literature, this paper sums up some problems, such as the lack of educational management and legal system guarantee, the lack of scientific basis of physical education curriculum, the shortage of physical education teachers, the great difference in running schools, the low degree of attention to the education of special children and so on. Thinking deeply about these problems, combined with the policy of our country and the realistic needs of the development of sports activities for special children, and taking the sports activities of special children as the direction, this paper sums up the ways to optimizing the development of sports activities for special children, perfecting the legal system for the protection of special children and the mechanism of special physical education, constructing the curriculum of special physical education before school, training physical education teachers majoring in special education, raising funds and integrating educational resources.
