Instructors also benefit from the companion Web site, which features an instructor guide that provides objectives, suggestions for learning and enrichment activities, and resources. The Web site also supplies a test bank and PowerPoint presentations for each of the 29 chapters.

In addition to helping you understand the relationship between disabilities and their implications for people through age 21, the authors ground you in the foundational topics for adapted physical education and sport, explore the developmental considerations involved, and outline activities for people with unique physical education needs, suggesting activity modifications along the way.
