Presented are duplications of the responses given by the King County Division of Parks and Recreation (Seattle, Washington) as part of a project to collect, share, and compile information about, and techniques in the operation of 18 community action models for recreation services to the disabled. Model programs are categorized as consumer, client competency, recreation and leisure services, parks and recreation, rehabilitation, and voluntary health agency models. Reported are program services in the following areas: population served (mentally retarded, physically disabled, and senior adults); primary activities (sports and games, arts and crafts, dance, drama, music, socialization, and outdoor recreation); primary facilities used (parks, pools, recreational centers, and schools); staffing (three full-time recreation specialists, 10 leaders, 29 aides, and 259 volunteers); total budget ($199,276) and primary sources of support (King County government--general property tax); and values and goals achieved through the program (to provide diversified leisure services to special populations in King County). A copy of the completed survey form is also provided. (SBH)
