Chapters 1-3 summarize institute participants' views on topics such as normalization, needs, and advocacy for the deaf-blind (DB); report a consumer's, a parent's, a rehabilitation worker's, and a recreation worker's perspectives on recreation for the DB; and include overviews and a national survey of recreation services for the DB. Chapter 4 focuses on programs and includes basic concepts and definitions, papers on residential programs and play facilities, and specific program descriptions in areas such as music, camping, and gardening. Activity areas such as swimming, arts and crafts and outdoor education, and the development and evaluation of motor skills for the DB are covered in Chapters 5 and 6. Examined in Chapter 7 are assessment, evaluation, and research in recreation for the DB. In chapters 8-11 leisure education, special considerations, advocacy (including organizational and parent advocacy), and administration of recreation programs for the DB are explored. A final chapter identifies resources and includes features of 19 selected DB model program sites, a review of the literature, lists of materials, and a guide to information sources. Appended is information on institute personnel, materials, and instruments. (LS)
