Practical Pointers, v3 n9 Jan 1980
Activities designed to increase the movement ability and enjoyment of disabled students are described. The first section discusses three activities--aerial shuffleboard, aerial golf, and bottles and eggs--designed to improve eye-hand coordination and throwing ability. The use of cardboard walking stilts is discussed as a method to improve kinesthesis and gross motor planning, while performing the Charleston is said to improve rhythmic movements to music through auditory and kinesthetic synthesis. A final activity--modified skateboarding--was created for children with cerebral palsy and poor coordination. (CL)
