Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education
The practice of universal design--of making a product or environment accessible to all individuals--has been around for a long time. But, until now, that practice has never been explored in depth in the field of physical education. This groundbreaking text provides a much-needed link between universal design and physical education, extending boundaries as it offers physical educators a systematic guide to create, administer, manage, assess, and apply universal design for learning (UDL). Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education is for all physical educators--those who are or are preparing to become general PE teachers as well as those who are in the field of adapted physical education. This resource offers the following: Ready-to-use curricular units for grades K-12, with 31 universally designed lessons that demonstrate how teachers can apply UDL in specific content areas (teachers can also use those examples to build their own units and lessons) Rubrics for the 28 items on the Lieberman-Brian Inclusion Rating Scale for Physical Education (LIRSPE) to help teachers follow best practices in inclusion Tables, timelines, and paraeducator training checklists to ensure that UDL is effectively delivered from the beginning of the school year In her earlier text, Strategies for Inclusion, Third Edition, coauthor Lauren Lieberman included a valuable chapter about UDL that focused on detailed, practical steps for making classes inclusive. Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education approaches inclusion from the macro level, providing a comprehensive conceptual model of UDL and how to incorporate it into curriculum planning and teaching methods for K-12 physical education. Outcomes for Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education are aligned with SHAPE America's physical education standards and grade-level outcomes. Given that 94 percent of students with disabilities are taught in physical education settings, this text offers highly valuable guidance to general physical educators in providing equal access to, and engagement in, high-quality physical education for all students. Part I of Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education defines universal design and explains how it relates to physical education. It identifies barriers that teachers may face in adapting UDL to their programs and how to overcome these barriers. It also addresses critical assessment issues and guides teachers in supporting students with severe or multiple disabilities. Part I also covers advocacy issues such as how to teach students to speak up for their own needs and choices. Readers will gain insight into where their programs excel and where barriers might still exist when they employ the Lieberman-Brian Inclusion Rating Scale, a self-assessment tool that helps measure physical, programmatical, and social inclusion. Finally, part I reinforces several UDL principles by sharing many examples of how physical educators have applied UDL in their programs. Part II offers a trove of universally designed units and lesson plans for use across grades K-12, with separate chapters on lessons for elementary, sports, fitness, recreation, and aquatics. Universal Design for Learning in Physical Education is the first text to delve deeply into the concept of universal design in physical education. As such, it is a valuable resource for all PE teachers--both those leading general classes and adapted classes--to learn how to successfully implement universally designed units and lesson plans that enrich all their students' lives.

Right from the Start: A Practical Guide for Helping Young Children with Autism
This book argues that autistic children can be successful in early learning environments when teachers and parents understand the basics of autism, and when they have the tools to help these children expand their social and emotional skills. For parents and teachers who may be unfamiliar with autism (especially in its milder, more elusive forms), Right from the Start is an indispensable resource explaining the best practices for teaching young children on the spectrum. The book offers practical strategies that any teacher can easily incorporate into her daily routine-strategies that enrich the learning environment for neurotypical children as well. Right from the Start is also a useful resource for parents who can practice many of the book's techniques at home to reinforce the development of key skills. While many educational and therapeutic approaches to autism emphasize changing children's behavior and gaining their compliance, this book foregrounds the importance of self-regulation. This concept refers to a person's ability to cope with emotional highs and lows, to control his or her reactions to events, and to feel just right. It is important that we help children learn to recognize, assess, and modulate their feelings because self-regulation is the foundation of all learning and social development. Children need to be able to self-regulate to get through the day and to function well in the long term. While all young children struggle with self-regulation, autistic children find it especially difficult to manage their strong feelings. As a result of their neurodifferences, these children experience high levels of anxiety, sensitivity to stimuli in the environment, and difficulty understanding the nuances of social interaction. These and other challenges compromise autistic children's ability to self-regulate. In addition to discussing the importance of self-regulation, the book addresses the following key aspects of autism: social interaction, play skills, and sensory processing issues. After explaining why children experience challenges in these areas-and how such challenges impact self-regulation-the book offers techniques designed to help children improve their coping skills and overcome the various difficulties associated with autism. The chapters outline concrete strategies for helping children increase their social awareness, manage their sensory needs, engage with teachers and peers, and develop the language necessary for communicating emotions. With the tools in this book, parents, teachers, and administrators can help autistic children thrive from the first moment they ever set foot in a classroom.

Cases on Teaching Sexuality Education to Individuals with Autism
There are several reasons for providing sexuality education to individuals with autism including supporting healthy development and preventing undesirable outcomes. Supporting healthy development is predicated on notions that humans are inherently sexual beings and that knowledge about sexual development can empower the individual and contribute to more satisfying outcomes. Individuals with autism are at risk for poor outcomes in each of these areas, and specialized sexuality education may help reduce this risk. Ultimately, providing sexuality education to individuals with autism should lead to tangible, observable, and valuable outcomes that improve quality of life. However, many families, teachers, and therapists struggle with how to teach sexuality education to people with autism. Cases on Teaching Sexuality Education to Individuals With Autism is a critical scholarly resource that provides real case studies that show teachers, behavior analysts, and other stakeholders how to address sexuality education and problem behaviors using evidence-based practices. The case studies detail how teachers and therapists make treatment decisions, include family values and cultural beliefs in treatment, and use data to drive treatment decisions. Featuring a wide range of topics such as developmental disabilities, psychosexual development, and special education, this book is ideal for teachers, parents, therapists, behavior analysts, educational professionals, academicians, administrators, curriculum developers, researchers, and students.

Promoting Academic Readiness for African American Males with Dyslexia: Implications for Preschool to Elementary School Teaching
This timely book tackles underlying issues that see disproportionate numbers of African American males with dyslexia undiagnosed, untreated, and falling behind their peers in terms of literacy achievement. Considering factors including dialectic linguistic difference, limited phonological awareness, and the intersectionality of gender, language, and race, the studies included in this volume illustrate how classroom practices at preschool and elementary levels are failing to support students at risk of reading and writing difficulties. Promoting Academic Readiness for African American Males with Dyslexia shows that it is possible to provide every girl and boy, and particularly African American boys with effective support and appropriate interventions enabling them to read at a level that is conducive to ongoing academic performance and success. This, argue the authors of this volume, is vital to the social, emotional, moral, and intellectual development of our society. This edited volume was originally published as a special issue of Reading & Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties. It will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and academics in the field of African-American Education, Educational Equity, Race studies, Multiple learning difficulties and Literacy development.

Problematising Young People: A Critical Ethnographic Investigation of ADHD
Rather than being evidence-based, the `everyday' practice of ADHD health care enacted daily by a multitude of professionals is the result of the interaction of historical, social, political, economic and institutional elements. By drawing on several critical theorists, this book provides an ethnographic investigation of the nexus of elements that conditioned the possibility for the everyday social practice of ADHD to be in place within an NHS region in Scotland. The book develops a critical analytical approach, using the concepts of `problematisation' and the `apparatus' to capture a two-stage process - the questioning of how and why certain `things' become a problem, but also how these `things' are shaped as the objects that they become. The object of interest for this project was young people and the fieldwork was conducted in a small geographical region in Scotland, consisting of several periods in health and education services. Ethnographic tools utilised in the book include observation of clinical appointments, document analysis, interviews and archival research. The different layers of qualitative material examined in the study - from individual clinical appointment to national policy - have allowed for a reconnection of the discursive field in which the current practice of ADHD emerged. With a detailed theorisation of the theoretical concepts, as well as a clear account of application in empirical research, this book will act as a guide for researchers aiming to apply these concepts in applied research.
