The Organization and Implementation of an Elementary Adapted Physical Education Program.
Grove, Royden P.
This paper examines the organization and administration of the elementary adapted physical education program in the Indiana Area School District. The program, designed to meet special needs of pupils with temporary or permanent physical deficienceis, contains two basic phases: (a) the modified phase, which retains most of the activities of the regular program with adaptations for each individual pupil, and (b) the remedial phase, which includes the scientific use of special activities to build or rebuild normal strength and function in the affected body part. In an effort to describe the operational aspects of the program, this document emphasizes aims and objectives, personnel, organizational structure of the elementary adapted physical education team, screening procedures, referral procedures, scheduling, student examinations, student records, and evaluation. (A screening test, screening materials, forms, and letters are included in the appendixes.) (MJM)
