It is with great deal of satisfaction and motivation that I write this preface for the First edition of A Text of Adapted Physical Education and Sport. With great efforts I had written this book to provide students with comprehensive and precise information for understanding adapted physical education and sports. Recent Paralympics was one more encouragement for me to write this book specially the success of Indian Para athletes who has achieved remarkable success in the event. This book will provide insight about the legislations and laws to protect Individuals with disabilities and discuss about the various programes and schemes launched by the government of India. Further the book throws insight on the various physical education and sports activities that can be developed by the Physical education teachers and the teaching strategies to teach students with various disabilities. Thus this book responds to legislative requirements, including definition of special education. The requirement of identifying unique educational needs of the individual within the context of broad program of physical education, the requirement for IEP’s and the importance of education in the most normal integrated settings possible .This book has been designed to be user friendly keeping interview the syllabus of Adapted Physical education & Sport of LNIPE, Gwalior and other premier Physical education Institutes of India.
