Pawtucket School Department's 1979-1980 Title IV-C, Adaptive and Corrective Program of Physical Education. Final Evaluation Report.
The Adaptive and Corrective Program of Physical Education (ACPPE) of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was developed for the identification, medical diagnosis, and prescriptive treatment of students who have disabilities that preclude their participation in the schools' required physical education (PE) activities. The ACPPE served high school students are identified under five categories: orthopedic-skeletal deformities, respiratory-breathing complications, sensory-nerve problems, learning handicaps, and other conditions. The ACPPE curriculum comprised four elements--medical diagnositc and prescriptive screening, a program of modified and remedial PE activities, a health and nutrition program, and individualized instruction with peer student assistance. The program was evaluated in terms of the four program objectives. Evaluation questions were asked regarding assessment of program activities, project impact, communications, information gathering, cooperation/collaboration, and additional assessment of program activities concerns. The ACPPE designed and delivered a program of modified physical education activities to meet students' needs in accordance with the individualized education program data base developed for each of the participants. Evidence for the statistical and educational significance of the program's activities as well as the benefits that the student participants received was produced. Appendixes include a program introductory letter and program activities recommendation form. (SB)
