Abstract: The work done for end with the atypical person, in physical education end its closely related field, physical therapy, has been a subject of interest to me for some time. Therefore, in choosing my topic for this study, I looked for a subject which would enable me to study a part of physical education which would have a direct relationship with the therapeutics of corrective physical education and physical therapy. The acquisition by the Woman's College of the Amy Morris Homans collection from Wellesley College made available material on the Swedish system of gymnastics, developed by Per Henrik Ling and his successors.
