Activities for each area are presented in table form with information which includes developmental level (primary, intermediate, secondary); degree of physical handicap (moderate, severe); behavioral objective; enabling activities; facilities/materials/equipment modifications/adaptations; and materials and references. Additional sections address the topics of task analysis, communication boards, pupil development assessment, and teaching aids. Also provided is a 24-entry bibliography. (SBH)
