Multi-Disciplinary Preparation of Educators To Improve Services and Results for Children with Low-Incidence Disabilities in Adapted Physical Education. Final Report.
Stopka, Christine; Dykes, Mary K.
This final report describes the activities and accomplishments of a 3-year federally funded project at the University of Florida concerned with the multidisciplinary preparation of physical and special educators in adapted physical education for children with low-incidence disabilities. The project supported, per semester, 10-15 masters students, 8-10 undergraduates, and 1-2 doctoral students. It directed or assisted 28 sites/programs as proposed and initiated and implemented over 20 new sites/programs beyond those proposed. The project trained over 300 undergraduate students and over 100 currently employed teachers. Far more than the projected 200 individuals with disabilities were served and far more than the projected 4,000 hours of adapted or regular physical education assistance were delivered. Additionally, the project director answered numerous questions about adapted physical education via the Internet. The project also made 52 presentations and generated 62 publications. Specific project accomplishments and methods of evaluation are reported for each of 10 objectives. The report also lists the additional sites and programs involved, the presentations given, publications, reviews on manuscripts related to the grant, professional consultations, and honors and rewards received. Sample brochures are attached. (DB)
