Developing a Comprehensive Curriculum Management System for Students with Severe Mental Impairments.
England, Jill L.; Langton, Sarah
The curriculum for severely mentally and multiply impaired students lists annual goals, short-term instructional objectives, and performance objectives in nine content areas: cognitive, social, communication, self-care, fine motor, gross motor, independent/functional living, prevocational training skills, and leisure/recreation. The underlying philosophy incorporates traditional content instruction with age appropriate activities. Activities are further designed to promote acquisition of meaningful and relevant skills, allowing for partial participation as a goal for some students. Recordkeeping procedures are discussed for each content area, and examples of completed forms are appended. (CL)
