Goal Planning with Developmentally Disabled Persons: Procedures for Developing an Individualized Client Plan.
Houts, Peter S.; Scott, Robert A.
Outlined in the workbook are workshops designed for training front-line staff in writing individualized client plans for developmentally disabled persons. It is noted that workshops are taught by audio tape along with an associate instructor in small groups of four to eight individuals. Stressed are four basic goal planning strategies: involving the client from the beginning, using the client's strengths to set goals which help with his needs, taking small steps to reach the goal, and stating clearly who will do what and when. Excercises for each of the five sessions are summarized and illustrated (in cartoon form) and instructional materials (evaluation forms) are provided. (SB)
