McCarron, Lawrence; And Others
The manual is designed as a guide for the development of a physical fitness program for handicapped persons. An introduction emphasizes the role of fitness and provides an overview of the 45-minute developmental exercise program described in the following sections. Instructional information adresses such concerns as equipment, vocabulary, sequence, levels of instructional assistance, levels of performance, and classroom management. A discussion of the importance of good posture is followed by explanations of the exercise program components: warm-ups, aerobic exercise, and cool-down procedures. Both the aerobic and developmental exercise programs are organized according to beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. (CL)
