A Taxonomy of Instructional Objectives for Developmentally Disabled Persons: Personal Maintenance and Development: Homemaking and Community Life; Leisure; and Travel Domains. Working Paper 85-2. COMPETE: Community-Based Model for Public-School Exit and Transition to Employment.
Dever, Richard B.
The purpose of Project COMPETE is to use previous research and exemplary practices to develop and validate a model and training sequence to assist retarded youth to make the transition from school to employment in the most competitive environment possible. The taxonomy described in this project working paper focuses on instructional objectives in four domains. In the "Personal Maintenance and Development" domain are listed goals and objectives pertaining to routine body maintenance, illness treatment, establishing and maintaining personal relationships, and handling "glitches" such as equipment breakdowns. The "Homemaking and Community Life" domain focuses on goals and objectives related to finding and caring for one's living quarters, getting along with neighbors and others in the community, and handling the "glitches" that arise during daily community life such as household supplies depletion. The "Leisure" domain identifies goals and objectives for developing leisure activities, performing leisure activity routines, co-existing with others during leisure times, and handling such "glitches" as equipment breakdowns. In the "Travel" domain are listed tasks related to routine travel in the community, use of conveyances, co-existing with others while traveling, and handling glitches such as schedule changes. For each goal, the taxonomy also notes desirable precursors which, though not required prior to the time of instruction, can make instruction easier. (JDD)
