Leisure Services: Selected Surveys of Services for Special Groups.
Neal, Larry L., Ed.
Reported are the results of five separate surveys to identify needs and assess status of leisure services to special populations in Oregon. An introductory chapter contains a summary of findings and recommendations and four succeeding chapters present survey information regarding services to the handicapped provided in hospitals and institutions, municipalities and districts, and community youth agencies. Briefly discussed are services for the aged. Among recommendations cited are establishment of a state level coordinating agency to supervise programing for the aged and assessment of recreation's contribution to early hospital or institutional release. Also included is a profile study of 483 graduate and undergraduate students designed to identify the types of students who were enrolled in courses related to services for handicapped children and youth.
