Community Living Skills Guide: Homemaking and Family Living.
Jones, Gwen; Kreps, Alice Roelofs
This is one of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series which provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Homemaking and Family Living. 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. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the maintenance of independent living skills, i.e., problem solving in relation to food identification, serving and manners, clothing selection and care, personal appearance and hygiene, and family responsibility. Nine steps in the course follow this outline: food identificatlon, attractive food service, manners and eating, clothing care, dressing for occasion or weather, grooming and hygiene, family relationships, family responsibilities, family finances, and family environment. Some additional activities for this and related courses are available as CE 024 478. 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)
