Individualized Leisure Programs for Disabled Individuals.
Morreau, Lanny E.; And Others
Practical Pointers, v3 n12 Feb 1980
The role of three professional groups--adaptive physical educators, therapeutic recreation specialists, and special educators--in planning individualized leisure programs for disabled persons is discussed. Characteristics of such programs should take into consideration principles of normalization and least restrictive environment. A systems approach is advocated that uses objective based programing and assessment. Selection and adaptation of activities should then be based on inclusion of both active and sedentary involvement, taking into account individual needs and characteristics, and providing varying degrees of individual and group participation.
