Social Skills Curricular Strategy for Students with Severe Disabilities.
Noonan, Mary Jo; And Others
Part of a series on the Hawaii Integration Project designed to facilitate integration of severely handicapped students, this guide presents strategies for leisure time integration. Following a discussion of rationale and assumptions in chapter 1, chapter 2 presents the interactive curricular model which views social competence as determined by social skills in conjunction with task skills needed to function in the community and satisfy basic human needs. Chapter 3 outlines an assessment process which includes the following steps: (1) identification of desired roles and environments, (2) observation of the student's present routines and activities, (3) discrepancy analysis of what is desired and what is occurring, (4) selection of the critical routines and activities, and (5) examination of the social skills embedded in the routines and activities to determine appropriate instructional objectives. The final chapter considers instructional strategies, with discussions of objectives, curriculum sequencing, and instructional programs (subdivided into antecedent, response, and consequence components).
