Guide to Avocational Activities. Volume I.
Overs, Robert P.; And Others
Guidelines are provided for choosing avocational activities for handicapped persons. Activity descriptions are made for 83 types of games, 98 kinds of sport activities, and 104 nature related activities. (The following volume contains activity descriptions for additional activities. See EC 042 139.) Information concerning avocational activities is presented in two forms. First, a check list is provided and includes information such as a listing of environmental factors, social psychological factors associated with the activity, possible cost of equipment and needed supplies to pursue the activity, an estimate on whether the activity is within the physical and/or mental capacity of an individual with a specified impairment, references, and an estimate of the range of energy expenditure. A brief narrative description then follows the check list. The narrative contains a general description of the kind of activity involved and its relationship to various impairments. No attempt is made to explain activity rules and regulations. The Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress code numbers are presented at the beginning of each narrative. (For the quick find list, see EC 042 140.) (CB)
