Whinnery, Stacie B.; Whinnery, Keith W.; Eddins, Daisy
Physical Disabilities: Education and Related Services, v35 n1 p17-27 2016
This article addresses the challenges educators face when attempting to find a balance between both functional and academic skill instruction for students with severe, multiple disabilities including motor impairments. The authors describe a strategy that employs embedded instruction of early numeracy and functional motor skills during physical education activities in order to address both curricular foci. They present a step-by-step process for collaboratively identifying targeted skills, developing embedded activities and systematically teaching within game-based activities.
