Summer Education Program for Neurologically and Physically Handicapped Children. Summer 1975. Evaluation Report.
Ellis, Ronald S.
Evaluated was the Summer Education Program for Neurologically and Physically Handicapped Children, designed to improve the performance of 145 children (6-16 years old) in the following areas--gross motor skills, swimming, fine motor skills, socialization with nonhandicapped peers, and independent daily living skills. The program included the following activities: pool hydrotherapy and swimming instruction, physical and occupational therapy, reading and mathematics instruction, arts and crafts, music, instruction in game skills, field day competition, and encouragement of parents to assist and participate in the program. Findings indicated that the program met its objectives of demonstrating a statistically significant improvement of its participants in program skill areas; and that the program as implemented coincided with the program as described in the proposal. (Appended materials include sample observation report forms, the rating scale, a schedule of daily activities, a sample parent questionnaire, and the program abstract.) (SBH)
