Instruction of Physically Handicapped Minors in Remedial Physical Education. Revised.
The 1967 California Legislature enacted regulations which enable local school districts to provide appropriate physical education programs for severely physically handicapped children who cannot be served in regular programs. After a summary of regulations on eligibility, class size, and reimbursement procedures, attention is given to the following: designing physical education programs to meet individual needs; procedures for initiating instruction in remedial physical education; guidelines for judging severity of disabilities; apportionment of financial allowances; requirements for a suitable teaching station; and essential equipment and supplies. Course objectives, policies for developing a course of study, and class procedures and organization are stated; an outline of course content is provided. Two appendixes include the medical evaluation form and the form for the physician's recommendation for physical education and other physical activities. (DF)
