CHOICE Review

Comprising essays by a group of international scholars on a variety of critical issues in the world of ability, disability, sport, and adapted physical activity, this book provides comprehensive, historically based coverage. Each chapter addresses current research in a specific area and provides the reader with a "what now" perspective. For example, in her chapter, "The Remarkable Logic of Autism," Maureen Connolly addresses this specific disability in relation to movement education, which has "a high efficacy as a therapeutic intervention. A thematic or conceptual approach to designing and presenting tasks allows for an array of 'correct' responses and the opportunity to refine movement patterns and broaden the movement repertoire." This speaks to the beauty of this timely book, which not only provides definitions and applications but also looks at the challenges of determining how best to serve the individual and at what still needs to be done--i.e., at how far one can go in terms of ethics. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals. K. H. Weiller University of North Texas
