No other adapted physical education text has sold more copies than this book—but the contributors are not resting on their laurels. The text is loaded with new and updated material:
  • Enhanced coverage of universal design for learning, with strategies and applications presented throughout the text
  • A new chapter devoted entirely to adventure sports and activities
  • A chapter on adapted sport that has been further developed to reflect the progress in the field
  • Enhanced coverage of sport-specific injuries and prevention
Also new to this edition are related online learning aids delivered through HKPropel, including assignable learning and enrichment activities to help students apply the book’s foundational knowledge. The HKPropel resources also include an instructor guide with teaching tips and strategies, ideas for an introductory course in adapted physical education and sport, and a sample syllabus. Other tools include a test bank, video clips demonstrating 26 of the fitness tests from The Brockport Physical Fitness Test Manual, and forms, tables, and calculators related to the Brockport Physical Fitness Test.

In addition, the team of 30 highly renowned contributors includes 12 new voices who add their perspectives to the content.
