Elkins, Bruce; Czapski, Stephen
The report describes Detroit's Adaptive Physical Education Consortium Project in Michigan. Among the main objectives of the project are to coordinate all physical education and recreation services to the handicapped in the Detroit area; to facilitate the mainstreaming of capable handicapped individuals into existing "regular" physical education and recreation programs; to establish an adapted sports and recreation lending library available to all schools, universities, community agencies, and individuals (including parents) who join the consortium project; to conduct inservice training programs for all project participants; to create a teaching laboratory where adapted physical education, therapeutic recreation, and dance therapy students can polish and develop their skills; to develop various products to assist in the coordination and communication of project activities; and to establish an advisory council and parent roundtable to offer guidance and assistance to the project.
