Integrating Persons with Handicapping Conditions into Regular Physical Education and Recreation Programs.
Presented is an analysis of selected research and program literature which is coordinated with an extensive reference list on the integration of the handicapped into regular physical education (PE) and recreation programs. Included are statements on mainstreaming in public school PE, athletic, and intramural programs; community recreation programs; and camp situations; as well as curriculum or model program descriptions for the regular classroom and descriptions of the attitudes of handicapped participants, their peers, and program personnel in integrated situations. Each statement is followed by a discussion subsection and ideas about future needs. The major portion of the document is devoted to a list of 144 references on integration in the regular classroom and in PE and recreation programs. References are generally listed alphabetically by author or source and usually contain titles, publication date, and an abstract describing the contents. Also provided is a list of five films (with descriptive information) and a topic index for the reference lists. (Author/LH)
