Special Physical Education: Adapted, Corrective, Developmental. 4th Edition
Fait, Hollis F.
A basic text on physical education for the handicapped, this edition is divided into four major sections containing detailed discussion of the general topic area under consideration. The first section presents basic information about historical background, general patterns of growth and development, the nature of motor learning, and the psychology of the handicapped. The chapters in the second section are concerned with the practical aspects of providing a good physical education program for handicapped students. Ideas are suggested for effective planning and operation of the program and for instructional and evaluative procedures that foster motor learning. Section three discusses disorders that occur commonly in school-age children. To enable physical education teachers to offer appropriate programs for these students, the chapters on the various kinds of disorders briefly describe their etiology and pathology, discuss special consideration in planning the programs, and suggest kinds of activities that may be offered. The focus of the final section is on activities and programs for handicapped students. Ideas are included for modifying rules and regulations, adapting playing techniques and equipment, and devising new versions of the activities. (Author/JD)
