An Introduction to Selecting Appropriate Goals and Activities for the Severely/Profoundly Impaired That Are Appropriate for Their Age. (Using Curricular Domains).
Two introductory manuals, written as part of a practicum to meet the staff needs in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania School District's severely/profoundly impaired (SPI) programs, focus on selecting goals and activities that are age appropriate for SPI students. Introductory materials review judicial rulings regarding Philadelphia's services for SPI students and summarize the literature on curriculum. A 1980 evaluation of the district's programs and recommendations is discussed. General practicum goals and the study methodology are outlined. The appendices, which make up the greater part of the document, contain the two manuals. The first manual covers age appropriate issues for children 4-6 years old and the second, 6-8 years old. Characteristics of children at each age level are specified and activities and materials for SPI children are suggested for the following areas: (1) personal maintenance, (2) interpersonal communication, (3) functional academics, (4) recreation/leisure, (5) domestic maintenance, and (6) vocational skills.
