Drs. Justin A. Haegele, Samuel R., Hodge, and Deborah R. Shapiro are proud to present the Routledge Handbook of Adapted Physical Education, the first focused, organized, and evidence-based review of theory, research, and practice specifically focusing in the field of adapted physical education. This handbook highlights the latest research and scholarship in the field and provides in-depth discourse about research and theory related to physical education for individuals with disabilities. The Routledge Handbook of Adapted Physical Education is divided into four sections, with 29 chapters written by over 50 experts in the field. Each chapter provides an overview of the content area, summary of current research in that area, current trends and issues pertinent to chapter topics, possible implications for practice, and concludes with reflective questions that can be used to develop further thoughts on the topical area. We expect that this handbook can be taken and used in a variety of different ways in order to inform and promote research and encourage debate among scholars who wish to use this resource to inform future endeavors and contribute to the field.
