Community Living Skills Guide: Recreation for the Adult Who Is Low Functioning.
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, Recreation for the Adult Who Is Low Functioning. 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 for the course include increasing socialization and the ability to deal with sophisticated physical activity through (1) use of the skills of self-awareness, spatial awareness, and exploring the environment; (2) sharing; and (3) cooperative education (working with others). Contents include suggestions for classroom activities, cooperative activities, and experiences (field trips). 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)
