Development of Educational Programs for New Careers in Recreation Services for the Disabled. First Annual Report.
New York Univ., NY. School of Education.
The purposes of the first phase of the New Careers Project for persons interested in careers in recreation services for the disabled person were (1) to carry out a functional job analysis in a variety of settings and (2) to define the roles and functions of paraprofessional recreation personnel in hospitals, extended care facilities, municipal recreation departments, and senior center programs. An interview questionnaire completed at 28 job-analysis sites resulted in identification of 79 job tasks and functions. A rating form designed to permit matching of the job tasks to education and work experience was developed from the questionnaire and evaluated by 18 experts in therapeutic and public recreation. Two workshops held to discuss the implications of the findings are outlined in the report. In addition, plans for the second phase of the project are presented. The job task questionnaire and the job task rating form are appended. (TL)
