Principles and Methods of Adapted Physical Education and Recreation.
Arnheim, Daniel D.; And Others
This text is designed for the elementary and secondary school physical educator and the recreation specialist in adapted physical education and, more specifically, as a text for college courses in adapted and corrective physical education and therapeutic recreation. The text is divided into four major divisions: scope, key teaching and therapy skills, programming for specific problems, and organization and administration. Part I provides an understanding of the nature of the atypical individual, focusing attention on the way in which the handicapped are cared for, aspects of growth and development, and perceptual implications for both typical and atypical individuals. Part II provides an indepth discussion of therapeutic exercise, tension reduction, low vitality and physical fitness, and adapted sports and games. Part III provides specific information about the most prevalent types of disabilities found in the elementary school, high school, and college age groups, and the implications of these disabilities for the physical education program. Part IV discusses organization and administration of a district or school program, illustrates means of organizing classes for instruction, and provides coverage of facilities and equipment used in the adapted physical education and therapeutic recreation program. Appendixes include directions for reciprocal (partner system), stall bar, pulley weight, and crutch and cane walking exercises. (MB)
