Assessment of Environmental Barriers to Leisure: A Literature Review.
Compton, David M.; And Others
The report on preliminary administration of the AEBLE (Assessment of Environmental Barriers to Leisure Experiences) instrument to 18 orthopedically impaired children reveals five factors (all but the family support) to be considered problems: community reaction resources, architectural barriers, accessible and available transportation, community support services, and caregiver support. Tables with statistical data are given. The manual for AEBLE utilization presents the rationale and description of the instrument, administration procedures, estimated time of administration, general instructions, instructions for scoring, interpretation of the instrument, and AEBLE development. The AEBLE interview guide and instructions contain profile sheets for each of the six factors, a description of the AEBLE plan, and sample forms. (SB)
