The newsletter describes the development of a therapeutic recreation program for the severely and profoundly retarded using a recreational programing hierarchy approach. Sections address the following areas: identifying the habits and habit systems of the retarded individual as they relate to the interactional process of the family system, understanding behaviors of severely and profoundly retarded persons, applying appropriate behavioral systems of control, using a sensory integrative approach, programing for specific skill development, applying behavior therapy learning principles, identifying target behaviors, identifying reinforcers, implementing daily programing and therapy, and establishing a teaching strategy for individual skill development sessions.
