Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Adapted Physical Activity

Conference paper


Professor Jochheim has offered many important points for our consideration. These points have significance for both theory and practice as we continue to shape adapted physical activity as a profession and discipline. In keeping with the theme of this symposium, Professor Jochheim has endorsed an interdisciplinary approach to adapted physical activity and emphasized the need for both institution-based and community-based service providers to be organized as wellequiped interdisciplinary professional teams.
