Appropriate for methods courses in Physical, Health or Multiple Disabilities. Thoroughly revised to incorporate the latest trends in the field, this long awaited revision meets the needs of inservice and preservice teachers in three major ways: by describing the implications of physical, health, or multiple disabilities; by illustrating ways to facilitate student participation in major life activities across home school and community environments; and by emphasizing school curriculum, physical access to it, adaptations, and instructional strategies to prepare students with these disabilities for appropriate and meaningful participation in major life activities. The information is presented in clear, jargon-free language that is appropriate for regular educators and administrators as well as special educators.show more
