Adapting Physical Education Activities.
Bundschuh, Ernest; And Others
Designed to meet the requirements of recent federal legislation, the booklet describes Project DART, which provides services in adapted physical education for handicapped children in Georgia. The first section examines the state of the art in adapted physical education and reviews the mandates of Public Law 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act), the writing of the individualized education plan, and the concept of accountability. Sections 2 and 3 provide definitions of handicapping conditions and approaches to program planning (i.e., informal assessment and teaching techniques, with specific suggestions for different handicapping conditions). Section 4 considers formal assessment and evaluation, including a listing of tests and scales used in the areas of physical fitness, motor development and ability, and perceptual motor development. Special needs of the multiply handicapped/orthopedically impaired population are addressed in the fifth section. The final section explores teaching methods and activity modifications. (PHR)
