This idea book on remedial physical education is divided into four sections. Each section contains drawings and brief explanations on ways to adapt physical education for the physically handicapped. The first section covers homemade equipment for developing muscular strength and endurance in specific muscles. Also included are resistive exercises for general body development for students with restricted use of a limb. The second section presents of adaptable ideas that make it possible for students to participate, to some degree, in a few of the more popular sports and activities (badminton, golf, bowling, archery, and ping pong). The third section contains two examples of instructional aids that can be made in order to communicate ideas related to body musculature and how it can be developed and maintained through exercise. The last section contains suggestions for encouraging students to continue participating to their limits in a conditioning program. Ideas include tests and charts to show student progress, information about the effects of exercise on the body, and information on how exercise can be used to develop and maintain physical fitness and recognition in activities generally participated in by all.
