Gendreau, Joan C.; And Others
One of a series of materials developed by Project APT (Administrators, Parents, and Teachers/Assessment, Programing, and Training), a program designed to foster home/school coordination in educational planning and program implementation for severely mentally retarded and/or multiply handicapped students; the booklet provides techniques for the assessement and management of behavior during school meals. Eating skills are divided into four levels and a chart indicates the functioning level, positioning requirements, adaptive equipment needs, food preparation considerations, and training strategies for each level. Environmental considerations, such as room temperature, are discussed as are the materials to have available. Brief guidelines for the management of mealtimes are provided. A list of 16 publishers and equipment suppliers specializing in information and materials for the management of meals and the evaluation forms for the four levels are included. (PHR)
