Paid Domestic Work for the Trainable Retarded Girl: A Pilot Project. Report No. 8.
Overs, Robert P.; And Others
A pilot project of the Curative Workshop of Milwaukee which provided domestic work training for four trainable mentally retarded girls is described. School psychologists' reports of the four adolescent trainees are included, and recommendations for future programing are noted. Evaluation data reflect the girls' performance, amount of supervision, job satisfaction, relationship to employer and supervisor, motivation, and interpersonal competence. Almost half of the report consists of a selected annotated bibliography and a list of references relating to the education, training and placement of the mentally retarded. The appendixes present household job task descriptions, safety skills check lists, related inventories of visual and auditory skills, and the project evaluation form. (RD)
