Leisure and Recreation Behavior Checklist.
Haller, Otto; And Others
The Leisure and Recreation Behavior Checklist (LRBC) is an open-ended checklist for recording behaviors of mentally handicapped adults. Its function is to profile individuals' leisure or recreation activities for program, administration, and research purposes. Intended for use by care-givers, the measure stresses recording of observed behaviors and not interpretations of behavior. Distinctions are drawn among leisure, leisure-education, and recreation behavior. The checklist is arranged in categories of behaviors such as Participant Activities, Crafts and Hobbies, etc. These are further subdivided into types of activities with each type consisting of specific activities (such as bowling and curling under Precision Sports). Client preferences may also be recorded. Instructions and a sample checklist are included. (DB)
