Inclusion in Physical Education is a practical, easy-to-use guide filled with inclusion strategies that focus on developing the physical and social skills and fitness of students with disabilities. And these strategies do not involve extended planning or setup time or extra equipment.

Written by Pattie Rouse, a teacher who has been working with students with disabilities since 1982, this book takes the guesswork out of including students with disabilities in general physical education. Inclusion in Physical Education is divided into chapters according to specific disabilities, thus helping you immediately find the information you need as well as the basic characteristics and expected behaviors of children with each type of disability. Rouse offers chapters on inclusion for students with these conditions:
-Autism disorder

-Limited use of limbs, requiring wheelchair use

-Intellectual disabilities

-Cerebral palsy and other orthopedic impairments

-Visual and hearing impairments
Also included are chapters on the importance of inclusion (and the importance of paraeducators and peer facilitators in the process of inclusion), on differentiating instruction to include students with disabilities in general physical education, and on using adapted games to teach students empathy for their peers with disabilities. These games provide opportunities for all students to be equal and to be more understanding of and receptive toward others' differences.

Written from Rouse's own experience and based on feedback from students with disabilities, this book is a guide that you can immediately put to use in including students with disabilities or delayed motor skills and can continue to use throughout your career as an educator. The book helps you set realistic goals for students with disabilities and correlates with many objectives found in the national physical education standards.

With Inclusion in Physical Education , you can include students with any disability in your curriculum. The book's ready-to-use resources will help you confidently create a program that benefits all students.
