Arnheim, Daniel D.; And Others
Programs in adapted physical education are presented preceded by a background of services for the handicapped, by the psychosocial implications of disability, and by the growth and development of the handicapped. Elements of conducting programs discussed are organization and administration, class organization, facilities, exercise programs (selection, assignment, and teaching), an exercise for tension reduction, and adapted games and sports. Problems of specific disabilities and programs for the unfit which are considered are the following: posture malalignment, cardiovascular disorders, musculoskeletal disorders (acute, chronic, and congenital), mental retardation, emotional disturbances, sensory disorders, neurological and other disorders, and adult fitness and aging. Also included are photographs, a glossary, and four appendixes with exercise diagrams. (JM)
