This paper describes some issues which should be considered when placing mildly handicapped children with their nonhandicapped peers for physical education, and contrasts two approaches which seek to produce effective mainstreaming. In some parts of the country, having decided that mainstreaming large numbers of mildly handicapped children was appropriate, state education administrators have issued regulations and guidelines aimed at ensuring delivery of services. However, it is suggested that mainstreaming policies and procedures which do not take account of conditions in widely disparate local school settings may be unlikely to match the unique needs of each handicapped child. An alternate way to ensure effective mainstreaming is discussed.

It may be that important happenings during the 1960s and 1970s have helped to bring about the increased amount of published research in adapted physical education (APE), Three major research thrusts were identified which advanced the APE knowledge base: the evaluation of performance, physical education in the least restrictive environment, and effective programming. Specific suggestions were made for improving the quality of future research, and for the dissemination of research results.

This paper documents the contents and development of APAQ over its first decade of publishing. It has two major sections. The first is an analysis of the topics and authorship of APAQ articles. For example, it was found that articles on mental retardation have been published more frequently than articles on traditional disability categories, although articles that are not disability specific have been most common. Not surprisingly, perhaps, a large percentage of authors are from the U.S. and Canada. The second section of the paper outlines changes in policy and function associated with These include modifications to editorial board membership, upgrading of the manuscript review process, and growing internationalism.

Intact classes of mentally retarded and nonhandicapped children were administered the Physical Dexterity scales of the System of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment and the short form of the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency. Separate discriminant analyses of each data set revealed that the subjects comprised four distinct levels of motor performance. Although overall predicted correct classification was above 65%, misclassifications occurred in each class. Differences resulting from the separate analyses suggest differential program placement for physical education. There is a tendency for the Physical Dexterity data to predict higher levels of motor functioning than the Motor Proficiency data for half of the mentally retarded children.

In this opinion paper, we pose the question whether the current generation of scholars have taken advantage of the rich legacy of early adapted physical activity (APA) research. We believe that this legacy often has been ignored, even though it holds many treasures waiting to be rediscovered. We begin with a brief description of the knowledge base in APA prior to 1980, then evaluate the present recognition of past research contributions. Finally, we recommend how students, professionals, and researchers might be encouraged to take advantage of the vast body of literature in APA and related fields.
