Citizenship Rights Training Manual.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Human Services, Oklahoma City. Developmental Disabilities Services Div.
The goal of this training manual is to encourage citizenship training for individuals with developmental disabilities when such training is indicated. It is intended to be used by interdisciplinary teams and trainers throughout the service delivery system. The manual begins by outlining a philosophy of service delivery, listing some of the basic rights of developmentally disabled individuals, and presenting guidelines regarding types of training and the roles of individuals, service providers, families and legal representatives in the training process. Much of the manual is devoted to materials that are intended to guide trainers in presenting information over a broad range of citizenship topics. Each topic area addresses the responsibilities that accompany it. Issues within the following topic areas are addressed: safety, speech, religion, government, association, privacy, education, employment, personal possessions, self-management, legal, health, and community. A list of references and a resource guide also are included. (DB)
