The resource guide is designed to assist educators, park resource persons, and parents of disabled children in locating and identifying sources of information for developing, implementing, and evaluating outdoor education programs for all disabled children and youth. The guide has two main parts. The first part contains an annotated bibliography citing 182 special outdoor education, general outdoor education, funding, and accessibility resources; titles, addresses, and prices of 22 special and 23 general journals and newsletters; titles and addresses of 22 resource catalogs; names and addresses of 54 organizations concerned with outdoor/environmental education; telephone numbers and addresses of state outdoor special education directors; addresses and telephone numbers of 51 colleges and universities offering a curriculum emphasis in outdoor education and/or therapeutic recreation; and names and addresses of the 92 publishers of the resources first listed in the bibliography. A subject index lists 40 different descriptors cross referenced with bibliographic citations. The second part of the guide is an annotated directory of 172 separate outdoor education programs and centers--representing 28 states--which serve both disabled and non-disabled persons in either segregated or mainstreamed settings. Organized alphabetically by state, each entry provides the program's address, telephone number, name of contact person, type of disabled population served, and a brief description of services and activities offered.
