Improving Learning Ability Through Compensatory Physical Education.
Humphrey, James H.
This book presents a procedure for improving, through the medium of physical education activities, the learning ability of children. Rather than using systematic exercises for the correction of certain perceptual-motor deficiencies, learning ability can be enhanced through active games, rhythmic activities, and self-testing activities. Covering a wide range of activities and skills, this book discusses the nature of compensatory physical education; perceptual-motor development; use of broad categories of curriculum content for compensatory physical education; body-concept; laterality and directionality; kinesthetic and tactile perception; visual and auditory perception, and implementing compensatory physical education.
