Designing and Implementing Effective Adapted Physical Education Programs was written to assist adapted and general physical educators who are dedicated to ensuring that the physical and motor needs of all their students are addressed in physical education.

While it is anticipated that adapted physical educators, where available, will typically take the lead in many of the planning and assessing decisions addressed in this book, the content has been organized and presented in such a manner as to facilitate its use by all physical educators.

To meet the needs of all of your students requires collaboration, long-range planning, and continuous communication between all parties who work with your students.

Designing and Implementing Effective Adapted Physical Education Programs has been designed to provide you with the methods and procedures to address the physical education needs of your students with disabilities so that they can all achieve their potential and the benefits of physical education.
