Developmental and Adapted Physical Education. Second Edition.
Clarke, H. Harrison; Clarke, David H.
This book concentrates on activities to meet the needs of children and adults who are deficient in basic physical fitness components, who are handicapped in some respect: posture faults, poor flexibility, weight problems, or other inadequacies which interfere with their effective participation in physical education activities. It stresses procedures for developing muscular strength and circulatory-respiratory endurance. Evaluation methods and application of research findings are offered. Chapters are included that explain orthopedic, neurological, medical, sensory, surgical, and mental and psychological disorders and disabilities showing how to deal with them. (Author)
