The Physical and Social Environment for Feeding the Severely and Profoundly Handicapped.
Gupta, Carol E.
Effects of the physical and social environment on the feeding of severely and multiply handicapped students are discussed. The role of such physical environmental factors as sound, visual stimuli, light, movement, touch, clothing and furniture is considered. Among the social influences operating are the student's physical abilities and disabilities, current health, likes and dislikes, and past feeding activities. Suggestions are made for altering the environment to enhance the development of feeding skills. (CL)
