Description

As the number of students with autism and behavioral disorders in the classroom increase, and classes move toward a more collaborative model, training general physical education teachers to work with students with disabilities has become essential. This excellent resource encourages future teachers to consider the individual before the disability and to focus on what learners can do, rather than what they cannot. Talented experts in the field discuss how physical and motor functioning are relevant to the Physical Education teacher as well as the Adapted Physical Education teacher. The text offers a detailed overview of all aspects of adapted education, from critical laws and mandates to disability coverage and modification for safe physical activity.

The Fifth Edition is a larger trim size (8.5”x11”) and features substantial content updates—including expanded coverage of autism, diabetes, obesity, legal mandates, teaching aquatic skills, and a new chapter on sports for the disabled—and offers case studies, learning activities, and practical suggestions/tips for new teachers.

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
