Critical Pedagogy and APA: A Resonant (and Timely) Interdisciplinary Blend.

Adapt Phys Activ Q 2018 Jul 12;35(3):293-307. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

2 McGill University.

Critical pedagogy owes much of its emergence, development, and ongoing relevance to the work of Paulo Freire whose legacy remains relevant for a next generation of scholars who seek to explore issues of inclusion, oppression, social justice, and authentic expression. An interdisciplinary dialogue between critical pedagogy and adapted physical activity is timely, appropriate, and should focus on complex profiles of neurodiversity, mental illness, and mental health, with emphasis on pedagogic practices of practitioners in service delivery and teacher educators who prepare them for professional practice. A case-based scenario approach is used to present practitioner and teacher educator practices. Read More

Understanding Disability: Biopsychology, Biopolitics, and an In-Between-All Politics.

Authors:
Dan Goodley

Adapt Phys Activ Q 2018 Jul 25;35(3):308-319. Epub 2018 Mar 25.

1 University of Sheffield.

What do disability labels give us and what do they steal from us? How possible is it to live our lives without categories when life is necessarily categorical? In this brief provocation, I want to explore the disability labels through recourse to three perspectives that have much to say about categorization, disability, and the human condition: the biopsychological, the biopolitical, and, what I term, an in-between-all politics. It is my view that disability categories intervene in the world in some complex and often contradictory ways. One way of living with contradictions is to work across disciplinary boundaries, thus situating ourselves across divides and embracing uncertainty and contradiction to enhance all our lives.

Engaging Axiology: Enabling Meaningful Transdisciplinary Collaboration in Adapted Physical Activity.

Authors:
Danielle Peers

Adapt Phys Activ Q 2018 07 25;35(3):267-284. Epub 2018 Mar 25.

1 University of Alberta.

In this article, I explore the concept of axiology in the context of adapted physical activity research and analyze its connection to the more commonly discussed paradigmatic assumptions of epistemology and ontology. Following methodological scholars, I argue for an acknowledgment of the pivotal role that axiology already plays in adapted physical activity research and for the potential interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary opportunities that could be enabled by engaging with axiology in more explicit ways. I discuss a number of potential axiological gaps between the field of adapted physical activity and disability communities, arguing that such differences may undermine attempts at doing meaningful transdisciplinary research with such communities.

Energy Efficiency in Children With Myelomeningocele During Acute Use of Assistive Devices: A Pilot Study.

Adapt Phys Activ Q 2018 Jan 9;35(1):57-75. Epub 2018 Jan 9.

2 University of Michigan.

Due to increased metabolic demands during walking, ∼50% of children with myelomeningocele transition to wheelchair use during adolescence/early adulthood. The purpose of our pilot study involving children with myelomeningocele was to determine: (a) energy expenditure needs during acute use of common assistive devices and (b) if walking poles are a feasible assistive device. Oxygen uptake was recorded for eight (5-12 years old) children in four conditions: independent, walker, crutches, and poles. Read More

Adapt Phys Activ Q 2018 Jan 5;35(1):76-92. Epub 2018 Jan 5.

7 Liverpool John Moores University.

We investigated the match demands (distances covered and acute physiological responses) of amputee soccer and its impact on muscular endurance and power. Measures such as heart rate, blood lactate concentration, subjective rating of perceived exertion, and time-motion characteristics were recorded in 16 Brazilian amputee soccer players during matches. Before and after matches, players completed a battery of tests: push-ups, countermovement vertical jump performance, and medicine ball throwing. Read More
