Educating for Adaptive Skills.
Short, Ronald
Innovation Abstracts, v5 n8 Mar 11 1983
Adaptive skills are the perceptual, emotional, and behavioral tendencies that are learned at a young age. They can be a major block to competence by affecting one's functioning at the two higher skill levels of functional and work content skills. Because students and faculty relate to each other as members of a family, they can help each other learn about their adaptive skills. Some areas in educational programs for which this holds implications are: (1) the community of learners; (2) experiential learning; (3) program feedback; (4) faculty composition; (5) faculty/student ratio; (6) self-assessment; and (7) individual therapy. An instrument for assessing adaptive skills, the Adaptive Skills Checklist, has been developed. An address is provided for further information or a copy of the instrument. (DC)
