Impact of Instruction for Disabled Adults in Independent Living Skills.
The College for Living Program in Denver, Colorado, focuses on independent living skills for developmentally disabled adults. The program is described in terms of its history (beginning in 1974) and its focus on education and community services provided by institutions of higher education. The program's three major goals and component objectives are listed, the organizational structure described, and a special project involving computer aided instruction reviewed. The bulk of the report emphasizes evaluation methodology and results based on changes in students' skill attainment, impact on teachers, and public service outcomes (including its effects on volunteer training). Data on enrollees are presented according to number and type of handicap. Findings are cited which show positive changes in self concept and improvement in the attitudes of the volunteer teachers toward handicapped students. (MC)
