Without making complex curricular changes or costly staff additions, regular educators and adapted physical education specialists can creatively and meaningfully include students of all ages and abilities in regular physical education programs. This practical guide is filled with real-life case examples, step-by-step instructional and curricular strategies, and easy-to-implement game and activity modifications. Timesaving forms and checklists provide assistance in program planning, individualized assessment, and ongoing evaluation of programs and students. Using the groundbreaking model described in this book, teachers, principals, and administrators will be able to adapt programs to meet the physical education needs of all students. Central to A Teacher's Guide to Including Students with Disabilities in Regular Physical Education are three chapters that detail methods for successfully including preschool/kindergarten, elementary, and middle/high school students with disabilities in regular physical education classes. Whatever the age of the students in their program, instructors can turn to the appropriate chapter for guidance on determining what to teach; analyzing the curriculum; making appropriate modifications; securing adequate support; and preparing regular educators, students, and support personnel. Indispensable as a hands-on guide and ideal as a training tool for graduate students in special education and adapted physical education, A Teacher's Guide to Including Students with Disabilities in Regular Physical Education will fully equip instructors to provide meaningful programs.
