You could discuss special considerations for how this person could be included and taught in classroom if your direction is teacher education. You could discuss the physical capabilities that could (should?) be expected from the person, and how exercise can help, or hurt, their condition and their overall physical health, if your direction is exercise science. In all cases this final section (like all of your paper) must be research based and be referenced to sources, people are not interested in what you think should be done, but in what experts you have learned from think. Citations are critical here to justify your method of working with such a person. In all sections, your work should emphasize motor control (i.e., neurophysiology and muscle physiology) aspects of your topic, not biomechanical, cardiovascular, behavioral etc. For this brief report format you will use a modified APA citation method. See the course web site for sample assignments including examples of the bibliography and in text citation method in the prostate cancer example . Specifically you must cite your references as follows: Create a bibliography list using all of the APA rules for how to cite a source in a reference list, and sequence the list in alphabetical order, by author name. Add numbers to the reference list to identify each reference. Cite the information in the text using the numbers as superscript immediately following the related information in the text. Your report must have a minimum of seven references . Use the biomedical and educational databases (& other sources) for your literature search. Education students must not only rely upon education sources, at the most 3 can be from the education (nonbiomedical) literature. Within the minimum of seven references you must have: At least four peer reviewed journal articles , any number more than this is encouraged. Electronic journals are not considered to be web sites, they are journals. A maximum of one book. A maximum of three highly reputable web sites. Web sites may only be national professional organizations (e.g., AMA), government web sites (e.g., NIH, CDC), or nationally recognized non-profit health information source dedicated to a specific disease (e.g., American Heart Association, American Cancer Society). There are a sufficient number of these highly dependable web sites available that other web sources (even ones with MDs on editorial boards or as authors) are not acceptable. If in doubt, check your source with your instructor. See Dr. Chalmers’ web site for links to quality web sites that

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
