Street Survival Skills Questionnaire for the Deaf.
McCarron, Lawrence T.; Stall, Colleen H.
Guidelines are given assessing the community living skills of deaf students through an adaptation of the Street Survival Skills Questionnaire (SSSQ), which was originally designed for developmentally disabled or handicapped adolescents and adults. Adaptations include consideration of situational factors (such as visual distractions) and the influences of using manual communication. Examples of the notation system used are given, and instructions are presented for nine topic areas: basic concepts; functional signs; tools; domestic management; health, safety, first aid; public service; time; money; and measurement.
