Instructional Programming for Severely Handicapped Youth: A Community Integration Approach.
Wehman, Paul, Ed.; Hill, Janet W., Ed.
Ten papers focus on aspects of a community integration approach for severely and profoundly handicapped students. Two general papers introduce the monograph: "Preparing Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Youth to Enter Less Restrictive Environments" (P. Wehman and J. Hill) and "Characteristics of an Appropriate Education for Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Individuals" (P. Wehman, et al.). The role of leisure time programing is examined in "Acquisition and Generalization of Leisure Skills in Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Youth: Use of An Electronic Pinball Machine" (J. Hill, et al.); "Integration of Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Youth into Community Based Recreation Programs: A Social Validation" (J. Hill, P. Wehman); "Developing Chronologically Age Appropriate Leisure Skills in Severely Multihandicapped Adolescents: Three Case Studies" (G. Horst, et al.); and "Use of an Automated Recreational Device to Facilitate Independent Leisure and Motor Behavior in a Profoundly Retarded Male" (J. Hill). Home management is the topic of papers by J. Hill and P. Wehman ("An Initial Assessment of the Needs of Parents of Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Youth") and S. Schleien, et al. ("Developing Independent Cooking Skills in Profoundly Retarded Women"). Two papers, by N. Harris, et al. and J. Hill and N. Harris on vocational education conclude the document: "Evaluating the Efficacy of Verbal Prompting, Social, and Token Reinforcers on Workshop Performance of Severely Multihandicapped Youth" and "Shaping Work Production in Severely and Profoundly Retarded Youth: A Changing Criterion Approach."
