Berryman, Doris L.; And Others
The guidelines presented are intended to assist recreation agencies in extending their services to handicapped children. Basic information is given on getting a program started: services to provide, staffing, funding, program coordinator, facilities, locating equipment, volunteers, and where to obtain advice. Identified are the needs and potentials of minimally, moderately, and severely disabled children, and how these needs relate to programing. Listed in descending order of difficulty are some problems and solutions in providing recreation programs for handicapped children, such as parental and community anxiety about safety and related factors. Summarized briefly are 25 cases in which agencies have used creative and innovative approaches to activate existing resources for recreation service. (KW)
