The Independent Living Behavior Checklist: Experimental Edition.
Walls, Richard T.; And Others
The document describes independent living skills, and provides information on how they can be measured. It is explained in an introductory chapter that the checklist is an extensive list of 343 independent living skill objectives specified in terms of conditions (antecedents or givens), behaviors, and standards. Objectives are classified and presented in Chapters 2 through 7 in six categories: mobility skills, self care skills, home maintenance and safety skills, food skills, social and communication skills, and functional academic skills. Skill summary charts are designed to be used as an overall record of all skill objectives achieved by the client in all six categories. An eighth chapter discusses the use of the checklist for an individualized education program, an individualized written rehabilitation program, and an individualized habilitation plan. A final chapter gives reliability and validity data. Following a list of references are appendixes which include skill summary chart forms and a blank skill objectives profile. (SBH)
