Adaptive Behavior Guidelines.
Ohio Association of Supervisors and Work-Study Coordinators.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Special Education.
These guidelines were prepared to provide direction toward implementing a functional instruction curriculum that leads to independence and occupational skills for Ohio's developmentally handicapped and multihandicapped students. The curriculum uses a three-part definition of adaptive behavior, involving independent functioning, personal responsibility, and social responsibility. To assist teachers with carrying out effective, functional instructional programs, the guidelines address program goals and current issues in special education programming. Specifically, the guidelines cover: definitions and key principles; the multifactored evaluation; the evaluation team report; the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process and linking assessment to IEP goals; linking courses of study and task analyses to instruction; lesson planning; and descriptions of seven adaptive behavior assessment instruments.
