SKIL:SACK, Skills of Independent Living: Screening Assessment and Curriculum Kit. Volumes I-III.
Woosley, Terry; And Others
Three volumes contain the results of a projejct to develop an evaluation procedure and training program for young adults and adults with hearing impairments, visual impairments, or multiple handicaps. Four major components are included: (1) the National Independent Living Skills Screening Instrument, The National Independent Living Skills Assessment Instrument, The National Independent Living Skills Curriculum Guide, and the Screening for Physical/Occupational Therapy Referral (SPOTR) Tool. The screening/assessment instrument and curriculum guide focus on seven areas of independent living skills: community awareness, legal awareness, money management, family responsibility, health/hygiene, social/interpersonal skills, and maladaptive behavior. The resulting profile can illustrate strengths and weaknesses and indicate a relationship of functioning to a continuum of supervision levels found in alternative living environments. The SPOTR identifies the need for referral to occupational/physical therapists. The curriculum guide delineates units of instruction according to supervision levels and specific resources and materials. (CL)
