Special Project: Family Life Education/Social Skills Development Training for Teachers and Parents of the Sensorially Disabled. Final Report, June 1, 1979-May 31, 1982.
Thornton, Carla; And Others
The document contains the final report of a special project to increase sexual information as well as social awareness and skill of deaf and blind youth through workshops for teachers and parents on family life education and social skills development. Training activities for the project's 3 years are outlined. Evaluation of workshops by trainees revealed that the workshops had a positive impact on the respondents' perceptions of the social skills potential of their students or clients, that a majority of the workshop participants were incorporating elements of the workshop curriculum into their activities rather than attempting to establish new courses, that pre/post assessments of sexual attitudes and behavior yielded little change since the average respondent was originally quite liberal, and that followup efforts indicated that many respondents were using materials and information gained from the workshop in their teaching and/or consulting activities. Tables with statistical data relating to the workshop evaluations are included. Appendixes, which make up the bulk of the document, include samples of workshop agendas, tables with statistical data, sample questionnaires and subtests, and a sample federal form. (SW)
