Editors: Roseanna Davidson, Effie Laman and Michael Shaughnessy
Book Description:
Students in a regular physical education program typically learn skills through observation and practice. Teachers and specialists working with students who are sensory impaired with multiple disabilities face unique challenges. Because such students make up a small percentage of the population, physical education texts on adaptation, instructional strategies and activities for groups give only minimal information about working with them. This new book explores the issues of the physical education curricula for sensory handicapped children. Typically, these curricula are based on old techniques that have been used since time immemorial. Rather than examine how teachers utilize obsolete curricula, this important book examines how they effect the students.
