Community Living Skills Guide: General Experience Course for the Lower Functioning Person.
Kreps, Alice Roelofs; Joslin, Denny
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, General Experience Course for the Lower Functioning Person. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Goals and objectives include enabling the student to enjoy learning to work on basic communication skills and gross motor and fine motor skills. More specifically, the student will want to do more activities on his own initiative, be able to make his needs known more clearly to others, and better understand requests made of him. Each of the six steps in the course may take several weeks according to the individual. Suggestions are given for discussions and activities. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
