Foundations of Adapted Physical Education

K. Andrew R. Richards

Abstract


HK 326 is an undergraduate course in adapted physical education for preservice physical education, elementary education, and special education students. It is the only exposure to adapted physical education students in these majors receive at the university. Toward this end, HK 326 attempts to provide a broad range of experiences and assessment in order to help prepare students to work with special needs children in the future. The course aims to provide a background in adapted physical education theory as well as a laboratory experiences and practical training through field placements. The university's Adapted Physical Activity (APA) program is coordinated through the course and creates a service-learning element that allows students to apply what they have learned in lecture by serving children with disabilities in the local community.
