The document is a brief collection of materials which provide a framework whereby local Kansas education units can individually and collectively identify ways to use the statewide effort to strengthen existing programs of service or develop new approaches at the local level for educating the mentally retarded. Part I introduces the process systems approach to program management and evaluation. Terminology related to the approach is defined. Part II, on program structures, contains tables outlining scope and sequence of education settings and experiences for early childhood through adult levels. Tables on dependency levels of performance are also offered.

The following areas are covered: codes, rules, laws, and regulations/rights and responsibilities of citizenship; communication/interaction; leisure time/change of pace; management of finances/budgeting; personal and environmental health/maintenance and well being; personal and family welfare/interdependence; spatial orientation and travel/mobility; and world of work and employment/increasing economic independence.
