The Teaching Research Small Residential Facilities Project.
Teaching Research Infant and Child Center Newsletter, v16 n3 Apr 1989
The Small Residential Facilities Project of Teaching Research is developing residential models targeted for six populations who have been considered difficult to serve in the community. A progress report is presented on the four established programs. The Adolescent Severely Emotionally Disturbed Program consists of an apartment program, an intensive foster care program, a classroom modeled on a resource room to serve the students, and a community-based vocational program. The Independence Group Home serves five youth with moderate retardation who also have severe behavior disorders. After 1-3 years in this home, youth are moved to foster care or other less restrictive environments. The Clackamas Group Home was established to provide a residential setting for a population of young adults who are severely multiply handicapped. This program is working to develop electronic communication systems for the residents, a day activity program, and an emphasis on resident management of the home. The Hillsboro Group Home provides a community residence for youth who are profoundly retarded, where they can attend public school and participate in age-appropriate activities. In addition to these four programs, plans call for development of residential programs for adults who are medically fragile and those who are self-injurious. Contains seven references. (JDD)
