Cassidy, Anne E.
Designed for the practitioner who wants a general overview of the major program development considerations necessary for accommodating handicapped persons in the out-of-doors, this paper discusses the major highlights and results of research activities conducted by the Outdoor Education for the Handicapped Project at the University of Kentucky. The first section presents a general overview of the basic concepts and philosophies of outdoor education, Federal legislation pertaining to the handicapped, and a rationale for outdoor education for the handicapped. The major portion of the paper presents a detailed description of the process used to develop and evaluate an instructional program model and products designed specifically for educators, park and resource management personnel, and parents of exceptional children. The final section features a list of 21 recommended readings and references on outdoor education for the handicapped. (Author/ERB)
