The ASEAN Para Games is a biannual multi-sport event held after every Southeast Asian Games for ASEAN athletes with physical disabilities. The games are participated by the 11 countries located in Southeast Asia. The Para Games, patterned after the Paralympic Games, are played by physically challenged athletes with mobility disabilities, visual disabilities, who are amputees and those with cerebral palsy.
The ASEAN ParaGames is under the regulation of the ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF). The games are hosted by the same country where the SEA Games took place.

- 5th ASEAN Para Games originally scheduled for Laos, was instead held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from August 15–19, 2009. The Sailing event held in Port Dickson was a full medal sport.
- Selected to host the 2009 SEA Games, Laos begged off from hosting the 5th ASEAN Paragames due to financial difficulty and inexperience in providing necessary support for athletes with disabilities. This edition of the Para Games was also notable for being launched into action 5 months ahead of the Sea Games.
- The Paralympic shooting event was a full medal sport.
- Sailing introduced as a demo sport.
- wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis was played for the first time
- Timor Leste was formally included in the Games increasing its member countries to eleven.
- The 1st ASEAN ParaGames, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from October 25–30, 2001, was the initial major sports event of the ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF).
- The APSF was conceived in the special meeting of the National Paralympic Committees of the ASEAN countries during the 10th Malaysian Paralympiad and the ASEAN Cities Invitational. The ASEAN Para Games, the “parallel” sports event for the disabled after every Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), was patterned after the Paralympics and the FESPIC Games.
- To promote friendship and solidarity among persons with disabilities in the ASEAN region through sports;
- To promote and develop sports for the differently abled;
- To rehabilitate and integrate persons with disability into mainstream society through sports.
The design shows the Asean logo positioned with the symbol and image of Paralympic and a victory laurel. The design intends to show the emergence of togetherness of Paralympic Sports Leaders with One Vision, One Mission and a commitment in the pursuit of equality in sports and in life for persons with a disability in the ASEAN region.
Asean solidarity, working together through APSF with an unbreakable bond in unity and brotherhood shall display the will and determination to achieve success in sports and in life. The victory laurel signifies this commitment to excellence.
From this regional image, a sense of cooperation, pride and eternal harmony is unmasked and it is an image that connects us all together in "Mind, Body, Spirit" as in the ideals of the Paralympic Movement.
