Adaptive Physical Education: A Resource Guide for Teachers, Administrators, and Parents.
Dunn, John M.
This booklet, designed to assist school districts in providing appropriate physical education experiences for developmentally disabled students: (1) describes legislative requirements which mandate physical education services for handicapped students; (2) discusses physical education and individualized education programs (IEPs); and (3) includes special education references which teachers can use to implement appropriate programs. A discussion of the implications of Public Law 94-142 (Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975) and of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 covers major concepts of these laws and the rights of handicapped students. A discussion concerning physical education and IEPs deals with participants in IEP decision making; the content, goals and objectives of an IEP; and student placement. Techniques for adapting physical education activities and equipment are presented. Information is provided about resource materials on implementing physical education services for the handicapped. References for tests, curricular materials, and books are included. The appendixes include examples of an IEP and a task analysis, and illustrations of sign language used in a physical education context. An outline is included of the process which a committee can use to provide services to handicapped students. (JD)
