A 1966 SUMMER PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN WITH PHYSICAL, MULTIPLE AND MENTAL HANDICAPS, JUNE 22, 1966 - AUGUST 17, 1966. PROGRAM EVALUATION.
Milwaukee Public Schools, WI.
THIS SUMMER PROGRAM FOR HANDICAPPED CHILDREN WAS DESIGNED TO MEET THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF THESE CHILDREN FOR SOCIALIZATION AND BETTER USE OF LEISURE TIME AND TO PROVIDE DATA WHICH WOULD ENABLE THE DIVISION OF MUNICIPAL RECREATION AND ADULT EDUCATION OF THE MILWAUKEE PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO PLAN FUTURE PROGRAMS. BOTH THE MENTALLY HANDICAPPED CHILDREN'S PROGRAM (54 PARTICIPANTS) AND THE PROGRAM FOR PHYSICALLY OR MULTIPLY HANDICAPPED CHILDREN (51 PARTICIPANTS) CONSISTED OF GAMES, CRAFTS, MUSICAL ACTIVITIES, AND FIELD TRIPS. BASE-LINE DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM DESCRIPTIONS OF THE CHILDREN BY THE DIRECTOR, THE HAYDEN PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST, AND AN ADAPTATION OF THE DOMAN-DELACATO PROFILE. QUESTIONNAIRES FOR CHILDREN, STAFF, AND PARENTS WERE USED FOR PROGRAM EVALUATION. RESULTS SHOWED THE RANGE OF PHYSICAL FITNESS. THE FOUR CHILDREN TESTED WITH THE DOMAN-DELACATO PROFILE SCORED ON FOUR OF THE FIVE POSSIBLE SCORING LEVELS, EXCLUDING THE HIGHEST LEVEL. CHILDREN'S QUESTIONNAIRE RESULTS SHOWED A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF HAPPY RESPONSES (THAN EITHER NEUTRAL OR SAD RESPONSES) TO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PORGRAM. STAFF RATINGS OF THE PROGRAM RANGED FROM SATISFACTORY TO OUTSTANDING. PARENT RESPONSES ALSO INDICATED A HIGH DEGREE OF SATISFACTION. (JZ)
