Outdoor and Adventure Programs: Complementing Individual Education Programs and Treatment Plan Objectives.
Witman, Jeff; And Others
Practical Pointers, v4 n1 Jul 1980
Model programs are briefly described which use outdoor education to carry out individualized education programs for handicapped students. Sample objectives for individuals and their corresponding activities are listed for such areas as outdoor cookery, wilderness camping, and participation in local outdoor recreational facilities or areas. Descriptions are given of initiative and adventure tasks, and examples of realizing specific educational objectives through outdoor programing are cited. A mainstreaming approach to adventure education is reviewed in which students are involved in "new games," i.e., situations stressing cooperation rather than competition. (CL)
