On-Site Child Care Training for Physically Handicapped, Mentally Alert Adults. Final Report, 1983-84.
United Cerebral Palsy of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Long Branch, NJ.
A project was undertaken to create a program of training to prepare physically handicapped but mentally alert clients of United Cerebral Palsy of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Inc. in New Jersey for employment in various child care situations. Training was provided at the adult program site, Camp Oakhurst. During the project, 10 clients of the adult program provided supervised child care for up to five active young children who belonged to members of the camp staff. The participating clients were fully involved in every phase of the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the project. The program provided practical supervised educational opportunities that enabled the 10 clients to gain child care experience, skill, confidence, and credibility. Based on the evaluations of the project made by those implementing and those participating in it, recommendations were made calling for the adaption of a similar project by other agencies, schools, and industries. (Appended to this report are an evaluation form, an application for children, and a handbook.) (MN)
