"All the movements for each section are simple, accessible and repetitive.Highly Recommended! The CD-ROM contains 80 full color printable worksheets to enhance the lessons. The sets of 9 lessons are perfect for using in a school setting with typically 9 week quarters. This set holds lots of promise for both adaptive physical education instructors and classroom teachers of students with intellectual disabilities."
