ISAPA G. LAWRENCE RARICK MEMORIAL LECTURE


 
Most would agree that G. Lawrence Rarick was the most prominent APA researcher ever. His early education in the sciences underpinned a continuing belief in maturation theory to explain age, gender, and disability characteristics of motor performance of children across the age range of school years. Professor Rarick completed a series of research studies, so large and ambitious as to scare most of us, their scale and complexity was most impressive. Those studies have provided the field with classic baseline data across performance levels,gender, and ability structures.
With participants who had Down syndrome, or learning disabilities, or mild/moderate intellectual disability, his work shed light on typical and atypical performance expectations and had significant programmatic implications.
