Guide for Homemade Innovative Play Equipment for Activities in Physical Education and Recreation for Impaired, Disabled, and Handicapped Participants.
Pearson, L. Roger
This document describes homemade and inexpensive equipment, supplies, and adapted devices for use in physical education, recreation, camping, and playground programs for handicapped individuals. As well as being slanted toward low-budget programs, this publication also aims at large groups of participants of varying interests, ages, and abilities. It presents line drawings of equipment that show proper dimensions for construction; it provides examples of activities that might be used with the equipment; it gives hints on modifying performances; and it lists safety considerations and materials needed for construction. An annotated bibliography precedes the appendixes, which include a list of contributors, an evaluation guide, suggestions for additional equipment, and a classification index for finding devices and equipment in the guide according to purpose.
