This document is composed of 10 manuals which provide both general and specific guidelines to facilitate the inclusion of Canadian students with disabilities in physical education programs. An introductory manual identifies general concepts, strategies, and practical approaches that can be used in an inclusive physical education program. It discusses the benefits of inclusive physical education, the importance of using appropriate terminology, the value of a team approach, safety considerations, assessment, the Individual Education Plan, and principles of program modification and evaluation. Some assessment measures are appended. Eight other manuals each focus on a specific disability and have sections on the following topics: the values of an inclusive physical education program, planning an inclusive program, program modifications, technical aids, instructional strategies, a glossary, checklists, and suggested resources. The manuals address the following types of students: (1) students who use a wheelchair; (2) students who are deaf or hard of hearing; (3) students with an intellectual disability; (4) students with cerebral palsy; (5) students with multiple disabilities; (6) students with amputations; (7) students with a visual impairment; and (8) students who are physically awkward. A supplementary manual offers suggestions for maximizing opportunities for students with disabilities in the sport of skiing. (DB)
