Littman, Karen G.
The document presents the final report of the Special Training Project for Physical Education and Recreation Personnel in Psychomotor Programming for Preschool Handicapped Children, a 3 year project intended to encourge and expedite physical education and recreation programs for preschool handicapped children by preparing administrators and practitioners to implement preschool physical education and recreation programs. In the first year the activities focused on providing awareness training for recreation personnel, physical educators, parents, and the community in general. Developing and pilot testing materials to train implementors of preschool recreation programs for handicapped children and the continuation of awareness training were the major activities of the second year. The third year, training materials were revised based on evaluative data. Additionally, trainers were prepared to continue training programs to further the implementation of recreation programs for preschool handicapped children nationwide. The project culminated in the completion and dissemination of a trainer's handbook, which presents a competency based instruction approach for training providers of preschool recreation programs for both handicapped and nonhandicapped children.
