Book Description

This is the first book to offer an in-depth review of research pertaining to individuals with visual impairments across the full span of movement-related disciplines, from biomechanics and motor learning to physical education and Paralympic sport.

 

Each chapter highlights current research trends, future research directions, and practical implications in a key discipline or area of professional practice, drawing on empirical research evidence and opening up new avenues for cross-disciplinary working. Covering physical activity across the life course, from children and young people through to older adults, and addressing the important topic of deafblindness in some depth, the book goes further than any other book published to date on visual impairment and movement.

 

This is essential reading for all advanced students and researchers working in sport, exercise and disability, and an invaluable reference for practitioners and service providers, from in-service teachers and camp directors to physical therapists and physical activity promotion specialists.
