From 21-24 June 1989 the overseas Federation of tailored actual job (IF APA) held its seventh foreign Symposium "Adapted actual job -An Interdisciplinary technique" in Berlin (West). This was once the 1st time that this symposium has been held in a German talking state, and it provided designated demanding situations to the organizers. for instance, neither the time period nor the sector of tailored actual job was once recognized in Germany prior to the symposium. hence, on the outset, the organizers' job was once to outline the that means of tailored actual job as an idea and to spot components and execs linked to it. After long and severe discussions we agreed at the following definition: tailored actual job refers to circulate, actual job, and activities during which detailed emphasis is put on the pursuits and services of people with restricting stipulations, similar to the disabled, overall healthiness impaired or elderly. even though using an English time period for a symposium in Germany wouldn't be authorised through all German talking execs, it used to be determined to exploit this time period simply because no translation seemed to be totally sufficient. "Sports for the Disabled", "Modified flow Activites", "Sport Therapy", or "Psychomotor workouts" may have represented in simple terms unmarried points of tailored actual job and have been therefore incomplete.

Every professional can benefit from partnership with a disabled adult athlete. In conclusion, and perhaps in a lighter vein, let me call attention to the number of times Professor Jochheim mentioned the benefits of horseback riding and other individual sports like trampoline, skiing, swimming, and sailing. These are sports that can be done in the community with family members or one or two friends. If a school system cannot provide instruction in both team and individual sports and a choice must be made, let us use the potential for lifetime involvement with community friends as our criterion.

I. Age distribution of severely disabled persons (Wood 1984, p. lochheim given adequate treatment and mobilization of the individual's coping potential in the framework of a jointly developed rehabilitation plan. The position that movement therapy and sports have gained in this respect is impressively demonstrated by the themes of this symposium. The patterns of organization currently found in health care and in the educational and vocational services provided to disabled people show a fairly unbalanced distribution of resources.

Ideally professionals from different disciplines should work as partners in rehabilitation rather than chaining responsibility sequentially from one to another. Initial planning of goals for patients, clients, or students should involve representatives from community agencies; this requires designing jobs that are salaried jointly by hospitals, schools, and communities, and/or creating new interdisciplinary patterns of staffing. Perhaps a job description should be written for transition counselors: professionals who divide their time between agencies and help disabled individuals make the transition from hospitals to school to community.
