Wheelchair User and Able-Bodied College Student Interaction: Scoring Manual.
Fichten, Catherine S.; Bourdon, Claudia V.
The manual provides an empirically-based coding system to assess the social skills of physically disabled students in wheelchairs and nondisabled college students. A list of 24 frequently occurring social situations in institutions of higher education are listed in rank order; the situations require a response either by physically disabled or able bodied students. Subsequent lists present reasonably common behaviors and responses by both groups in these situations with frequency and social appropriateness values on a 6-point scale. The situations may be adapted for in vivo, video, or audiotaped interaction. Also presented is the Social Situations Questionnaire, an open-ended measure of knowledge of appropriate social skills by able bodied students. A final section offers information on methodological issues. (CL)
