Practical Pointers, v5 n11 Aug 1982
The manual describes games and activities requiring minimal equipment and space for severely handicapped children. General guidelines touch upon such aspects as the importance of avoiding frustration or boredom, varying the activity to maintain interest, providing short rest periods when necessary, and ensuring the fullest possible participation for all students. Adaptation principles focus on consideration of equipment, playing areas, team size, game rules, and time factors. Descriptions are provided for games and activities that emphasize the following skills: walking, running, and wheeling; pushing and pulling; striking with hands and objects; throwing and catching; kicking; rolling; exercises/activities on floor mats; and table activities. Two separate sections describe wheelchair drills and aquatic games and activities. (CL)
