Adapted Physical Education National Standards
These national standards document basic competencies required for individuals providing adapted physical education services. They define qualifications for professionals in this field and the knowledge and skills needed by individuals preparing for the certification examination. An introduction describes the development of the standards, including findings from a survey of the current roles, responsibilities, and perceived needs of practicing adapted physical educators. Fifteen standards are then presented, delineating content that should be known by all physical educators and additional content that should be learned by adapted physical educators. In addition, examples of applications that adapted physical educators would be expected to demonstrate are provided. The 15 standards cover the following areas: human development, motor behavior, exercise science, measurement and evaluation, history and philosophy, unique attributes of learners and considerations for professional practice, curriculum theory and development, assessment, instructional design and planning, teaching, consultation and staff development, program evaluation, continuing education, ethics, and communication. Appendices include information about the National Consortium for Physical Education and Recreation for Individuals with Disabilities and a glossary. (Contains 90 references.) (SW)
