Product Description

Physical activity provides benefits for children’s health and fitness, and it also helps to improve their self-esteem, feelings of competence, and relationship skills. It is part of the expanded core curriculum that includes skills essential for students who are visually impaired.

Participation in physical education, however, has generally been more limited for individuals with visual impairments than for others with typical sight. To help close that gap, three prominent educators and athletes have created this important sourcebook on teaching the skills that will enable children and adults with visual impairments and deafblindness to participate in physical education, recreation, sports, and lifelong health and fitness activities. The ideal manual for physical educators, adapted physical education specialists, teachers of students with visual impairments, orientation and mobility specialists, occupational and recreational therapists, and anyone else interested in sports and recreation for persons who are visually impaired or deafblind.
