The proceedings from a 1983 conference on sports and recreation for students with physical disabilities are presented. The major part of the proceedings consists of state of the art analyses on five topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): (1) ability assessment (fitness norms, energy cost of walking, wheelchair kinesiology, psychology of children with orthopedic disabilities); (2) sports and recreational activities and adaptations (competitive wheelchair sports, tennis and racquet sports, preparation for participation in winter sports, aquatic sports, horseback riding); (3) specific adaptive techniques (prosthetic adaptations, technology and recreational mobility); (4) injuries in wheelchair activities; and (5) availability (community programs, camp programs, winter sports programs, involvement of the U.S. Olympic committee). Forms and checklists are provided, as are outlines for program development and suggestions for promoting communication among organizations and individuals. Extensive appendixes include bibliographies and information on functional classifications for competition. (CL)
