Inclusive Physical Activity, Second Edition, can help you • provide well-designed and appropriate physical activity for individuals of all abilities, • increase opportunities for meaningful participation in lifelong physical activity, and • facilitate physical activity to increase health and and wellness for individuals with disabilities. The book covers programming considerations and strategies for infants and toddlers, school-age children, and adults; examples of inclusive practices for commonly offered physical activities; and suggestions for more effectively individualizing programming. Inclusive Physical Activity also provides information on adapting instruction and providing activity alternatives across the life span in five content areas: 1. Movement skills 2. Games and sports 3.
